Tasting Notes:

A full-bodied sparkling with aromas of freshly baked pastries. The mousse of this golden sparkling is well integrated and bursts upon tasting. Well-balanced, with notes of candied apricots, poached pear, hazelnut, and vanilla. Enjoy with oysters, poultry, caviar, or serve as an apertif.

Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate grown fruit.  Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA).

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sparkling Reserve is our signature sparkling wine, which reflects the best techniques and aging methods of the vintage Méthode Champenoise process.  The grapes for this wine are hand-harvested from the oldest block on our vineyard. This block, with its age and north-facing slope, holds acidity and allows for the grapes to mature more slowly. Picking these grapes at peak ripeness, gentle pressing, and recovering only the Coeur de Cuvee, provides the perfect wine for aging. Aging in 65% stainless steel and 35% neutral French oak gives the wine a more soft and structured mouthfeel. This wine is then aged on tirage for 6 years on its lees, which allows the true flavors of the champenoise process to develop. At disgorging, a low amount of dosage finishes this wine in a Brut style, which is balanced, rich, and delightful.
