Tasting Notes
Fresh aromas of apple, pear, lemon, and honey with a crisp citrusy flavor, this sparkling wine finishes with wet stone and lime.
A blend of 50% Pinot Noir with 31% Chardonnay and 19% Pinot Meunier, this was disgorged in September 2018. On the nose there is good range from citrus rind to wild mushroom to sourdough bread. The palate is lithe and shows a great astringency. I am most impressed with the long finish that accentuates the beautiful sense of tension and balance in the wine. Highly refreshing, this is another great effort by Kramer Vineyards. Drink 2019-2029- 91 points!
Production Notes
Pinot Noir 50%, Chardonnay 31%, Pinot Meunier 19%
Winemaker Notes
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 autumn. The wine was bottled under cap, and aged in tirage bins until it was disgorged in September 2018 and finished without dosage.
