Amista Sparkling Tres NV20

Amista Sparkling Tres NV20

We are so excited about this first release of our Sparkling Tres! The beautiful fuschia-salmon color is the first thing to notice in this Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre blend. The aromas are of raspberry cordial, red currants, red licorice, satsuma orange and Meyer lemon blossom. The palate is beautifully fruit forward with lingering red berry notes, slivered almonds, and shortbread cookies. The finish is crisp and clean with a balance of fruit from the small amount of dosage.

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

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
A blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, Sparkling Tres was created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making Champagne and other sparkling wines.
Winemaker Notes
Each of the varietals in our Sparkling Tres were picked and vinified separately. After the first fermentation, the blend of 33% of each was put together and 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.
