100% organically grown Pinot Gris from our Estate Vineyard in Boonville, Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California
Whole cluster pressed, this sparkling Pinot Gris contains only the Coeur de Cuvee (the "heart" of the cuvee), less than half of the 154 gallons per ton pressed. The coeur cut delivers higher acidity and a more focused fruit character, contributing both to complexity and longevity. Tirage bottle on April 27, 2013. Disgorged May, 2015.
Taking inspiration from classic French champagnes, this sparkler is for serious fans of good bubbly. Because it's made from Pinot Gris, the wine is Alsace-scented, with incisive green apple accenting the aromas of diesel and lees. Once you sip, it's all mouth-watering as vibrant acidity sparks your taster into action and then cleanses it again. A complete wine with a surprising character.
