Description

The nose is fresh with notes of green apple, lemon, lime zest, mineral and light floral tones with notes of cream and lees. The mousse is fine with a rich, creamy mouthful, refreshing acidity and notes of green apple. The finish is structured and refreshing with lingering minerality and a touch of sweetness. Certainly perfect to drink now but will further develop complexities through short to medium term aging.

This wine is a perfect aperitif and will pair nicely with fresh shucked oysters, sushi and composed salads. Serve chilled at 5-8° C.

WINEMAKING NOTES: Our 2018 Blanc de Blanc is made from our neighbor Lado Viscek’s meticulously farmed vineyard. The fruit was hand-harvested in early September. Following harvest, the grapes were transferred gently into the press and the free run juice was captured separately to preserve the elegant profile. Primary fermentation was kept cool and in 100% stainless steel. Malolactic fermentation was suppressed to keep the fresh fruit character in the wine. The secondary fermentation took place in bottle and the wine was aged sur lattes for a minimum of 12 months. The wine was disgorged in summer 2020 with no dosage added, resulting in a classic Brut Nature.
