Amista Sparkling Blanc de Blanc

Amista Sparkling Blanc de Blanc

Our Blanc de Blanc is so beautifully floral this vintage. The nose has notes of jasmine and citrus blossom and delicate hints of Meyer lemon and granny smith apple, roasted hazelnuts and finger lime pearls. The palate continues with the apple notes and layers of Asian pear and pomelo. The finish is so pretty with lingering fruit notes and a balancing acidity.

Tasting Notes

Vineyard Notes
2020 was a vintage to remember. From early on in 2020, the vintage was quite warm. Bud break and set happened very smoothly and the crop size was considerably smaller after two large vintages. In the vineyard, all our varietals were concentrated in yields but delicious in flavors.
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
Chardonnay grapes for our Blanc de Blanc are always the first thing we pick each harvest, making this always our celebratory wine! The grapes were hand harvested in the early morning hours and kept extremely cold. Once in the winery, they were pressed directly off the skins. The juice went to a stainless-steel tank, where it slowly fermented over 18 days at about 57 degrees. After fermentation and settling, the wine was bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugar to induce secondary fermentation. This process took about 10 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. Finally, the bottles were topped up, a “dosage” was added, and the final corks and wire hoods were put into place.
