Our sparkling wines are sourced from vineyards in Carneros, undergoing a special process that takes about five years from vineyard to consumer. With four styles, Sparkling is the smallest of our collections and can be found in our tasting room, through our web store, as part of our wine club, and by very few select retailers.
The 2010 Lady Edythe Reserve Brut is pale straw yellow in color, with notes of lemon peel and buttered toast. Flavors of tart Granny Smith apples and freshly baked biscuits coat the palate, coupled with mouthwatering acidity and a round mouthfeel that linger through the wine’s long finish.
This wine is made in the traditional French method, where the secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. It then rested on the spent yeast cells for nearly five years before disgorgement. Six months additional rest post-disgorgement ensures the maximum expression of this exemplary wine.
