Vineyard The vineyards used are Alder Springs, Rorick Vineyard, Keefer Ranch and Charles Heintz. Vinification The grapes were pressed using a traditional Champagne cycle and press cut. The wine proceeded through a native primary and malolactic fermentation in barrel. The wine was racked once and tirage bottled without fining or filtering. After approximately two years under tirage the wine was riddled and disgorged à la volée with zero dosage. Notes Tasting notes from Michael : Golden, honeyed nose of toasted hazelnuts, pastry cream, and fresh pears. Gentle, soft mousse with a palate of white flowers, beeswax, and citrus. Long, pastry finish. Back to Current Releases
