New Release!

Terroir:

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

Winemakers' Notes:

Our Blanc de Noir, meaning "white from black",  made from 100% Pinot Noir, is a beautiful representation of how this grape can be transformed to create a world class sparkling wine. Made via Méthode Champenoise process, the grapes were picked by night and gently pressed to create a white juice in which to create the base for this sparkling wine. After aging in 67% stainless steel and 33% neutral French oak, this wine gained complexity by aging on the lees in the bottle for 36 months.  At disgorging, a reserve dosage was added to balance acidity and improve mouth-feel.

Tasting Notes:

It has a beautiful golden yellow color with a finely beaded mousse. Flavors of apple, pear, and citrus fruits dominate the nose but is nicely balanced with bread dough aromas and bright acidity. Finished with a reserve dosage to finish in a Brut style, this sparkling is truly balanced and ready to drink. Pairs great with mushrooms, Seafood, and Smoked Salmon.


Awards:
