Wine & Spirits
Deep gold, this sparkler emanates a toasty, buttery richness right from the start. A blend of early-picked pinots noir, gris and blanc as well as chardonnay and grüner veltliner from the chalky parcels of the estate, it ferments in stainless steel, then rests for a year in Austrian oak barrels before undergoing a secondary fermentation in bottle. That long, slow process allowed the wine to accumulate a profound depth of flavor. It tastes of buttered toast and apricot jam, of Cognac and button mushrooms, with a little lemon zing. It’s an opulent, elegant sparkler, worthy of lobster with drawn butter or your favorite buttery indulgence.
