Grand Cuvée

2018 Sparkling Wine

Our 2018 sparkling wine is a cuvée of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit.  Delicate, fine beads rise-up through your glass as the wine is poured.   Fragrant aromas of Honeycrisp apple and Asian pear are complimented with hints of hazelnut, light yeast/brioche, mineral, lemon, and wild strawberry. On the palate, fruit is balanced with Sonoma-Cutrer’s signature acidity with baked apple, nut, and light strawberry flavors shining through.  This sparkler is a perfect pairing with goat cheese, fruit tarts or fresh oysters with salmon caviar.

About this Wine

Grand Cuvée

Grapes for this wine were picked by hand at night and placed into small bins before being hand-sorted and whole cluster pressed. Careful attention was given to lightly pressing the berries to yield a juice that presented both a delicate color and bright, fruit characteristics.  The juice was then fermented in stainless steel prior to tirage bottling in February of 2019. As with all sparkling wine produced Méthode Traditionnelle, secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle.  Bottles rested en tirage at our winery until being disgorged in December 2021.
