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).

Vintage Notes:

After a good start to the growing season, the hot and dry summer led to early flavor development and ripeness, which allowed us to pick one week earlier than expected in August.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Brut is made via Méthode Champenoise by blending 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. Hand picking at night and gently pressing ensures that this wine retains all of its best qualities. After a combination of stainless steel and French oak barrel aging, the wine gains complexity by aging on the lees in the bottle for a minimum of 36 months.  At disgorging, a low dosage is added to balance acidity and improve mouthfeel.
