Our Estate Brut is a small cuvée comprised only of grapes grown in our own vineyards. The wine was aged a minimum of three years in our cellar. We love this wine now, but know it has exceptional further aging potential.

A defining feature of this remarkable vintage is in the even growing of the grapes. We began to harvest on August 15 and enjoyed moderate harvest conditions, which allowed us to pick the fruit slowly and consistently as it achieved the perfect ripeness. It was a larger than normal yielding harvest of very fine quality.
Enticing sip after sip, beautiful aromas of white peach, honeydew melon and pear mix with notes of lemon and lime and scents of toasted hazelnuts. Full flavors of lemon curd, crisp pear and a touch of candied ginger dance among tiny bubbles leading to a rounded palate and long finish. This wine is exceptional now and perfect for aging.
We recommend pairing it with rich double and triple cream or goat cheeses. Perfect with just a few toasted nuts, it will also enhance simple to complex meals. Oysters, poultry and even meat dishes work well and we suggest trying it with Asian cuisine.
