Sanford Blanc De Noirs
We are thrilled to release our first Blanc de Noirs! This classic sparkling wine is a white made from Pinot Noir grapes grown equally on both of our estate vineyards. These world-class, cool climate vineyards are proving that they can produce serious bubbles in addition to classic Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
PROFILE & WINEMAKING
With great quality Pinot Noir fruit comes opulent sparkling aromas of toasty berry fruits, blood orange, with hints of cassis and brown sugar. The palate is full, lively and mouth coating, with intense fruit concentration balanced by bright acidity and minerality. Barrel fermentation and Malolactic fermentation added to the complexity of the base wine before fermenting in bottle using traditional “Methode Champenoise”.
