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 2017 vintage, this latest expression includes intriguing aromas of fresh cut flowers, key lime, ginger, and honeydew melon.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2017 vintage is a classic expression of our Ultra Brut. A mélange of fresh lemon, pear, ginger, and honeydew melon on the nose leads to a dry, brisk, beautifully balanced palate of green apple, yuzu, lychee, and a hint of water cracker. With a surprising mouthwatering complexity, its bright, crisp fruit and dusty minerality ride on a serious structure, the persistent, palate-cleansing finish lingering on.
Vineyard Notes
In 2017, Carneros was gifted with its 3rd wettest winter in 125 years, refilling reservoirs and aquifers that had been depleted in the previous drought years. Happy vines developed healthy canopies which tempered the higher-than-average temperatures and brief heat spikes that characterized the growing season. Harvest began on August 7th, a fairly typical start date in Carneros. The resulting wines show beautiful depth, concentration, and freshness.
Food Pairing Notes
A wine with such textural vibrance and intriguing tension pairs beautifully with a rich, creamy sauced linguine, or foods with a natural voluptuousness such as raw oysters, or Dungeness crab.
