VINEYARDS: Pinot Noir from Escolle Vineyard (Santa Lucia Highlands), Pinot Meunier from Dommen Vineyard (Russian River), Chardonnay from Massa Estate (Carmel Valley), Chardonnay from Manchester Ridge (Mendocino Ridge)

The grapes were harvested slightly riper than is typical in Champagne. These cool climate sites retain their acidity amazingly well even at slightly higher ripeness levels. The wine showcases the lean, mineral driven quality of coastal Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and is rounded out by the more generous Pinot Meunier fruit character. This year’s blend is comprised of 77% Chardonnay, 12% Pinot Noir, and 11% Pinot Meunier. 11.8% ABV.

WINEMAKING: The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels. The wines were aged separately for 5 months before blending and bottling for secondary fermentation. 50% of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the acid profile and lend a savory component. Aged 12 months en tirage before being disgorged by hand at our winery. No part of our process is automated or outsourced to another facility. No dosage.

TASTING NOTES: Lemon Zest. Red Apple Skin. Pear. Marzipan. Wet stone.
