2020 Youngerg Hill Extended Tirage Sparkling
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 2020 Sparkling wine begins in the nose with lemon, lime, grapefruit peel, Asain pear, and green apple. The palette opens with citrus fruits, grilled pineapple, mineral stone, and hints of brioche. The finish is well-rounded, yet crisp and clean, with lingering hints of brioche on the palate.
