The grapes used to make this Rosé sparkling wine are all from the estate vineyard at Michel-Schlumberger located in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County.
Harvest: Average brix: 19.2
Fermentation: Fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to retain the fruit flavors. No malo-lactic fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was settled then blended into this cuvée.
Cooperage / Aging: The cuvée was bottled with a dosage of special sparkling wine yeast and allowed to ferment in the bottle. Aged for 12 months “on the yeast” in the bottle, the wine develops the classic rich texture and refined “sparkle” that comes from this “Methode Champenoise” technique.
Color: Pale strawberry
Aromas: Delicate aromas of essence of raspberry and honeysuckle
Palate: Round and creamy, with fresh berry flavors and well-balanced crispness.
