The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for this wine comes from select vineyards in the Willamette Valley, Crawford Beck Vineyards in Amity-Eola Hills AVA, and Carabella Vineyards in Chehalem AVA.
This sparkling is made in the traditional champagne method; Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are fermented separately in barrel, blended to meet our preferred characteristics, bottled with secondary yeast to ferment in bottle for up to 2 years, disgorged, dosage, corked, and labeled.
The 2018 Sparkling wine begins in the nose with stony minerality, grapefruit peel, almond, and green apple. The palette opens with sweet-tart citrus and grapefruit rounded out by lemon drop and pineapple, then continues with mineral stone and flint. The finish is silky, and dry. While crisp and clean, it has a long round finish.
