Tasting Notes: Tropical and lemon oil on the nose, grapefruit, kumquat and lemon-peel on the palate.
Making sparkling wine is always a fun adventure. We rarely make it the same way twice, which means there’s something new to discover and love about each vintage. We love the bubbles this year, which are soft, uplifting, approachable and thirst-quenching. This is a pétillant wine for all seasons. Snag a bottle for that special occasion or for making any occasion special.
This year’s sparkling is a scaled-up Pét-Nat. The Chenin Blanc grapes arrived from Shell Creek Vineyard on an August morning. After a few hours on the skins, the grapes were directly pressed into stainless steel tank. We added Chenin Blanc must and transferred the wine into pressurized tanks while still slightly sweet to finish fermentation.
VARIETIES: 95% Chenin Blanc | 5% Orange Muscat
VINEYARD: Shell Creek and Hartwick Vineyards
