Description

VINTAGE - NON VINTAGE.

APPELLATION - CARNEROS, SONOMA COUNTY, NORTH COAST, CALIFORNIA.

WINEMAKING
• Grapes are whole cluster pressed to avoid bitter compounds.
• Juice is naturally settled overnight (débourbage) to encourage a clean fermentation.
• Proprietary yeast used for the secondary bottle fermentation provides a delicate house signature from year to year.
• The cuvée is a blend of 18 different base wines fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Five to seven percent cold-soaked Pinot Noir juice (Vin Gris) is blended into the base wine for color and to establish the creamy notes in the finish.
• The wine spent a year and a half en tirage (on the yeast).
• Small and numerous bubbles are encouraged by autolysis, the process by which yeast imparts complexity and a yeasty character to the wine. The autolysis particles provide sites for the formation of the mousse.

DESCRIPTION:-
This wine has bright strawberry and black cherry aromas with subtle vanilla highlights. Creamy cherry, lemon and cola flavors combine with a lush palate, small, lively bubbles and a persistent finish.
Our Blanc de Noirs is predominantly made from hand-harvested Pinot Noir grapes, the hallmarks
of which are a vibrant red fruit character. The creamy palate and rosy hue are a result of a small addition
of Vin Gris, which was blended into the base cuvée. Over forty different clones and selections
of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are planted on our 340-acre estate in the Sonoma Carneros district.
This allows us to consistently produce cuvées with complexity and clear fruit expression.
