2017 Brut Blanc de Blancs
47 months en tirage
Our 2017 Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine is crafted using a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc grapes sourced from our estate vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and a nearby vineyard in the Willamette Valley. Aged on the lees for nearly four years, this wine boasts a rich complexity and depth of flavor. Delicate bubbles dance across the palate, carrying notes of crisp green apple, lemon zest, and a hint of brioche. Its refreshing acidity makes it a perfect pairing for seafood and light appetizers, while its elegant profile also makes it a lovely choice for special occasions.

Aromas of cardamom, talc, and lemon. On the palate, the small, plentiful bubbles deliver fresh, bright, citrus fruits, Asian pear, almond, wet stone, and subtle orange peel in the long finish.
Elvenglade & Yamhill Vineyards
Chardonnay 60%; Pinot Blanc 40%
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled overnight and racked to stainless for primary fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was racked off the heavy lees and aged until it was bottled under cap the following summer—the wine aged in tirage bins for 4 years until disgorgement in the summer of 2022.
