Tasting Notes

This dry sparkler opens with aromas of green apple with lemon and a hint of orange zest.

On the palate, bright citrus envelopes the tongue leading to creamy texture and a long, crisp finish.

“Left to sit on the yeast for five years, this late-disgorged sparkler is rich, full-bodied and voluptuously textured. Melon, pear and dark-cherry flavors present as lengthy, nervy and fresh.”

Food Parinings

Try this Extra Brut with lighter fare such as ahi poke with wasabi crème fraîche, sesame seeds, and fried wontons, or spring rolls with a red chili sauce. Smoked trout salad with spicy arugula, avocado, and citrus vinaigrette, or even a truffle macaroni and cheese also make great pairings.

Grapes are handpicked & transported to the winery in small bins where they are gently whole-cluster pressed to retain the delicate vibrancy and freshness. Our best press cuvée is used for this wine that is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 55-60°F. The wine is then bottled & aged on the lees for 45 months to develop complexity and effervescence.
