Amista 2014 Vintage Sparkling Blanc de Blanc

2014 was another great year for our Blanc de Blanc. On the nose are aromas of ripe pear, lemon blossom and hints of vanilla bean and brioche. The palate continues the pear and floral notes and adds rich lemon curd and a delicate toastiness from added bottle time. The finish has a light acidity for balance and depth. This wine is really perfect for all the classic Champagne pairings: briny oysters or caviar on salty potato chips with crème fraiche.  Buttered and salted popcorn would also be magical. 
64 cases made; 100% Chardonnay

All our sparkling wines are hand harvested from our estate vineyards in Healdsburg, California. Winemaker Ashley Herzberg puts the sparkle in every bottle using the traditional Méthode Champenoise, the process used to make fine French Champagne.

Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
100% Chardonnay; The Blanc de Blanc was created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making Champagne and other sparkling wines. The grapes were hand harvested at daybreak and gently whole cluster pressed to a stainless steel tank. The juice was inoculated using Quartz Yeast, which is a traditional champagne yeast and left to ferment for 32 days at very cold temperatures. After fermentation and settling, the wine was bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugar to induce secondary fermentation. This process took about 19 months. After this, the bottles were riddled to bring the lees and sediment to the neck of the bottle. The necks were then frozen and the lees were disgorged from the bottles. The bottles were then topped up and a “dosage” was added and the final corks and wire hoods were put into place.
