Tasting Notes
Perfect, tiny bubbles flood your senses with exquisite aromas of fresh brioche and warm toast, Hosui pear and flint.  The palate echoes the nose with a little extra tartness presenting as that quintessential pie apple, Bramley’s Seedling.  This is a beautifully balanced and luxuriously textured sparkling wine.

Vintage Notes
Warm weather enthusiastically welcomed the spring of 2013 and brought bud-break slightly ahead of schedule. Warmer than average temperatures throughout the early and middle parts of the growing season showed promise of a great vintage. As the season progressed, the summer brought moderate rainfall, which when coupled with the high temperatures created high disease pressure within our vineyards. Diligent leaf-pulling and fruit-thinning relieved an abundance of stress from our grapes and resulted in beautiful fruit, fully ripened and without disease. The fall ushered in cool weather and generous winds, leading to drier conditions and an ideal harvest. The wines produced from the 2013 vintage are finessed with bright fruity flavors and fine, elegant tannins.
