2017 Willow Creek Vineyard Brut

2017 Willow Creek Vineyard Brut

Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed with minimal rotations to ensure low phenolic extraction, the low-yield juice was clarified overnight, then racked to old French barriques for fermentation. Once dry, the base wine was blended and tiraged (the addition of sugar and yeast for the secondary fermentation) in September 2017, and remained on lees in bottle before riddling (shaking the yeast lees into the neck) and disgorging (freezing and expelling the yeast) in November 2021. This traditional method sparkling wine is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Slightest onion skin hue, and a steady, very fine bead. Bouquet: Citrus and red apple aromas, with hints of leatherwood honey and toast in a complex bouquet. Palate: Mouth-filling creamy mousse, with refreshing citrus notes and quite rich red fruits upfront; balanced, fine and long to finish.
