VINTAGE

2016 was an unusually dry growing season, but daily temperatures were fairly mild. These conditions resulted in the earliest harvest we have ever had, but the intensely perfumed and balanced grapes have made some lovely and very approachable balanced wines.

WINEMAKING

Made in the traditional method. This sparkling red is made from 100% Pinot Noir using traditional methods with 2 years on yeast lees.
