Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The aromas are of dusty strawberry, toasted almonds, lemon peel and graham cracker pie crust. The palate is fruit driven but also serious with robust flavors of rhubarb and strawberry and a strong undercurrent of cassis and loads of nutty brioche. The palate is round and full yet still very balanced with acidity.
Production Notes
This wine is a blend of 90% Chardonnay, 7% Grenache and 3% Syrah. Fusión was created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making Champagne and other sparkling wines.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested at daybreak and gently whole cluster pressed to a stainless steel tank separately. The juice was inoculated using Prisse de Mousse Yeast, which is a traditional champagne yeast and left to ferment for 21 days at very cold temperatures. After fermentation and settling, the three varietals were blended together and then bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugar to induce secondary fermentation. This process took about 20 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.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine would be perfect with grilled pork chops with grilled plums and is also a delicious all on its own.
