2016
Blanc de Blancs

Sparkling
Description

The Chardonnay grapes are grown in a single vineyard in south Napa. Due to its proximity to the San Pablo Bay, the winds provide a long, cool growing season that highlight the grape’s natural acidity.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

This Sparkling wine opens with lovely floral notes. 

Palate: 

A kiss of honey leads to flavors of Gala apple and stone fruit that spread across the palate. This is a refreshing Sparkling wine with a touch of citrus zest on the finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2016 vintage across California was a near-perfect growing season. A mild winter and spring led to warm days and cool nights in the summer and grape growers were able to maintain ideal acid levels with balanced, concentrated fruit flavors.
