2017 Ultra Brut

Very dry and brisk, our Ultra Brut is a contemplative sparkling wine that appeals to the true aficionado. Hailing from the stellar 2017 vintage, this latest expression includes intriguing aromas of yuzu fruit, vanilla bean, lime, and a hint of walnut.

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 vintage is a classic expression of our Ultra Brut. A mélange of fresh lemon, pear, ginger, and honeydew melon on the nose leads to a beautifully balanced palate of green apple, yuzu, lychee, and a hint of water cracker. With a surprising mouthwatering complexity, its bright, crisp fruit and dusty minerality ride on a serious structure, the persistent, palate-cleansing finish lingering on.

Food Pairings

A California Brut with such textural vibrance and intriguing tension pairs beautifully with a rich, creamy sauced linguine, or foods with a natural voluptuousness such as raw oysters, or Dungeness crab.
