New, lively, creamy.
Just released, this 2017 traditional method fizz is a joint effort between Hawksworth Restaurant Group's Wine Directors' Bryant Mao and Chris Rielly, and Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards. Made from estate Greata Ranch Vineyard (located between Summerland and Peachland, along Hwy 97), fruit it's a Chardonnay dominant bubbly blended with 25% Pinot Noir and 2% Meunier and is aptly named H's Brut. Expect crunchy orchard fruits, wildflower honey and lemon meringue aromas emerge on the palate alongside vague brioche and bread dough notes. Itâ€™s a dry, lively bubble, nicely constructed with a fine bead and snappy finish.
Available at Hawksworth restaurants.
