Head winemaker Kim Kramer has crafted a fantastic new wine with her 2014 ‘Brut’ Sparkling Wine. This delightful Sparkling Wine opens with a bouquet of brioche, lemon oil, white peach and allspice accents. This leads to bright flavors of Gravenstein apple, marzipan, baking spices and suggestions of green papaya. This shows wonderful poise and length, with a nice stringency towards the back end.

Expressive, fresh fruity aromas, including apple, pear, and lemon, with a hint clover honey. Citrusy on the palate, with a fine bead and crisp, balanced acidity, delicate complexity and depth, and finishing with wet stone and lime.

The grapes were harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed. The juice settled overnight, then was racked to a stainless tank for cool fermentation. When fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the fine lees until bottling the following winter. The wine was bottled under cap, and aged in tirage bins until it was disgorged in October 2016 and finished with 3 g/l dosage.
