Amista Sparkling Amistara

Amista Sparkling Amistara

Amistara, 20th anniversary celebration wine! To celebrate this milestone we have created a unique blanc de blanc. We included a small dosage of still chardonnay from our 20th harvest to add texture and complexity. Aromas of stone fruit, pear and citrus are classic characteristics of our Morningsong vineyard, the added dosage of Cristalina Chardonnay has brought a minerality and depth to the wine we have never experienced here at Amista Vineyards. This is truly a once and a lifetime wine, never to be produced again.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We made this very special wine to celebrate our 20th anniversary and it certainly is special! Aromas of kiwi, lemongrass, lemon zest, lemon curd with meringue and jasmine. The palate is bright with tons of green apple, citrus, lemon verbena and some orange rind. The finish is full of minerality but with hints of roundness from the addition of the concrete fermented chardonnay. This is such a beautiful wine and will age very well for many years to come.
Vineyard Notes
2022 was another quite warm vintage. We had extremely low rainfall over the winter and spring, which caused for a very small crop. Some frost and hail hit us in April, which further reduced the crop. A very warm summer led to an early harvest as well. However, because of the incredibly low yield, flavors are heightened and absolutely delicious from this vintage.
Production Notes
100% Chardonnay from our Wente clone; it was created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making fine French Champagne.
Winemaker Notes
We picked these grapes by hand at daybreak and immediately pressed them off the skins so they would be very fresh and pure in aroma and flavor from very minimal contact with the skins and seeds. We fermented cold in a stainless steel tank for for over one month. After fermentation, the wine went to bottle for a second fermentation for 12 months. Because this wine speaks to a celebration, we wanted to do something a bit different for the dosage so we added a small amount of still wine from our concrete egg to brighten the fruit and enhance the texture on the finish.
