Blended from 70 percent pinot noir, 20 percent chardonnay and the rest pinot meunier, this fine-boned sparkler has an earth tone reminiscent of pinot noir bruts. It smells of bread crust and lemon zest, with vinous flavors and zippy acids.
The 2015 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was impeccable, showcasing the enticing depth and focused precision the region has to offer. The Pinot Noir dominated blend provides impressive red-fruited dimension to the white peach, wild honey and toasted brioche. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and concentration to the long finish.
