2018 Ultra Brut

Ultra Brut is our driest sparkling wine, its low dosage highlighting the structure and minerality that appeals to the true aficionado. Hailing from the stellar 2018 vintage, this latest expression includes intriguing aromas of key lime, honeydew melon, and green apple.

Tasting Notes

Our 2018 vintage is a classic expression of our Ultra Brut. A mélange of key lime, honeydew melon, ginger, and green apple on the nose leads into a palate dancing with notes of ripe pineapple, fresh pear, yuzu, and lemon méringue. With a surprisingly mouthwatering complexity, its bright, crisp fruit and delicate minerality ride on a serious structure that leads to a generous effervescence.

Food Pairings

A wine with such textural vibrance and intriguing tension pairs beautifully with a rich, creamy sauced linguine, grilled pineapple fish tacos with pineapple salsa, or foods with a natural voluptuousness such as raw oysters, or Dungeness crab.
