Fragrant, pristine, charming.
A sparkling that is the palest pink shade with apricot glints, this single vineyard Pinot Noir is a charming traditional method fizz.
The base wine was fermented and aged for 6 months in neutral oak barriques and puncheons and then racked from fermentation lees and put to secondary fermentation in May 2018. It spent 22 months on secondary fermentation lees before disgorgement in late winter 2020 where it received a small dosage of 6 g/L of 2017 Pinot Noir still wine.
Expect applesauce and honey, summer berries drizzled in cream, vanilla, and vague nutty aromas. It is juicy and laden with apples and red berries with a suggestion of orange segments. Pretty, with a kiss of sweetness it is lifted, elegant and extremely refreshing bubbly.
At this price, buy a case.
