Vineyard This wine is from the 2018 base vintage. Pinot Noir makes up 68% of the blend, with approximately 7% being red wine, making it an assemblage rosé. The remainder is Chardonnay. The vineyards used are Rorick Heritage Vineyard high in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Alder Springs from Mendocino County, Keefer Ranch in Sonoma, and a small amount of wine for Linda Vista in Napa.
Vinification The grapes were pressed using a traditional Champagne cycle and press cut. The vineyards were fermented separately in barrel with native yeasts, natural malolactic fermentation, and no sulfur added. In the late spring, the wines were blended and tirage bottled. After nearly two years on lees, the bottles were riddled and disgorged with 6 g/L dosage.
