Notes on the Wine
Winemaking: Grapes were picked early for bright acids and pressed in whole clusters. The juice was fermented in neural oak barrels and aged on its lees for 7 months before going to the tank for bottling. This sparkling wine is produced in the “Charmat” style, which is a French method for adding carbon dioxide to the wine under pressure. Winemaker note: “What we are trying to produce is a wine that has a balance of fruit and savory flavors, but that is dry. We age the wine on its lees for added texture and weight.
