Sanford Brut Cuvée - Late Disgorged
We are so proud to release our 2013 Brut Cuvée – Late Disgorged after 31 months "en tirage" (time with yeast contact in the bottle). This classic brut comes from our two vineyards in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills, Sanford & Benedict and La Rinconada, and is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
This is the same blend as our 2013 Brut Cuvée, but the extra time has added richness and complexity. The Pinot Noir provides vibrant fruit and mouth feel and the Chardonnay component gives structural acidity, minerality and ageability. Enticing aromas of lemon peel, white raspberries, dried apricot, honeysuckle and tarragon abound. The palate delivers bright acidity, a lengthy palate with a refreshing
briny quality suggesting its “terroir”. A wine for celebration, for brunch or a wine just for dinner tonight!
