This lush, yet refreshing Bubbly has aromas of honeysuckle and fresh pear, with undertones of caramel and sweet vanilla. This lightly effervescent wine is balanced by clean bright acidity that leads into a soft, clean fnish.
The fruit for this wine came from our Estate Vineyards located in the Horse Heaven Hills. These vineyard sits on a southeast slope above the Columbia River. The orientation of the blocks allows for morning sun exposure of the fruit, while avoiding the intense afternoon rays.
The grapes were harvested in the very early hours of the morning so they would arrive to the winery cool. Once at the winery, the grapes went directly to the press where the juice was gently pressed away from the skins. The juice was allowed to cold settle for two days before racking. The juice was inoculated with a specific yeast and allowed to ferment cool over 30 days, allowing for great aroma development.
