2017 Blanc De Blancs Sta. Rita Hills
Flavor: Richness matched with energy are the signatures of the 2017 Blanc de Blancs. The expression of Chardonnay is nutty, bright, and citrus-driven which ultimately gives the wine its ample but racy personality. White flowers, lime zest, and brioche are some of the many notes that are layered into this elegant yet commanding wine. Barrel fermentation adds to the complexity of the base wine before fermenting in bottle traditionally.
Aroma: The 2017 vintage is a gorgeous Blanc de Blancs made from Chardonnay grown 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.
