Ultra Brut is a rare style of sparkling wine that is rarely produced. Very dry and brisk, it is a contemplative wine that appeals to the true aficionado. Hailing from the stellar 2016 vintage, this latest expression includes intriguing aromas of fresh cut flowers, key lime, ginger, and honeydew melon.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2016 vintage is a serious, expressive wine with a focused freshness and exceptionally long finish. A mélange of of fresh cut flowers, key lime, ginger, and honeydew melon on the nose leads to a dry, brisk, beautifully balanced palate of green apple, blanched almond, yuzu, and a touch of mandarin. With a surprising mouthwatering complexity, its bright, crisp fruit and dusty minerality ride on a serious structure, the persistent, palate-cleansing finish lingering on.
Winemaker Notes
2016 Harvest was a very nice, high quality vintage. We had a very mild growing season with lower than average temperatures in June and July, and very few heat spikes. This allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and consistently providing optimum flavor and development at harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
A wine with such textural vibrance and intriguing tension pairs beautifully with rich, creamy sauces or foods with a natural voluptuousness such as raw oysters, smoked salmon or lobster. And of course, wine-savvy friends.
