San Diego County (Dulzura, CA)
Valentina Vineyard (Non-certified Organic, Zero Herbicides)
Lanolin, jasmine, Meyer lemon, granite, and lime peel. Fine, frizzante bubbles. Extra Brut.
Grapes harvested August 24-25, 2020. Gentle, slow, whole-cluster press as for Champagne, taking only the cuvee portion to stainless steel Charmat tank, and sealed so wine would naturally carbonate during fermentation. All spontaneous fermentations. Tank stirred twice during aging. After fermentations complete, wine chilled and sulfited. Bottled in March of 2021.
A sibling to the still Uncharted (same harvest, different press cut and vinting).
