Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The aromas have hints of white peach, lemon zest and green apple are lifted with a touch of floral notes and lemon blossom. The palate is delicate with very subtle peach flavors, crisp green apple and just a dash of creamy brioche. This is a gorgeous wine that will pair well with almost anything.
Production Notes
100% Chardonnay; The Blanc de Blanc was created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making fine French Champagne.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested at daybreak and gently whole cluster pressed to a stainless steel tank. The juice was inoculated using Prise de Mousse Yeast, which is a traditional champagne yeast and left to ferment for 26 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 9 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
Seared sea scallops with grapefruit and avocado or hand cut potato chips would be delicious with this wine.
