"The 2017 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was precise, full of beautiful natural acidity and tension in a classically cool September harvest. The windy, high elevations of the Eola-Amity Hills, and specifically, our Spirit Hill Vineyard, is the source for our Blanc de Noirs. Pinot Noir builds red fruited depth and firm structure, while the increased proportion of Pinot Meunier this year highlights even more floral freshness and lift. Rose petal, cherry plum, and grapefruit are woven with creamy texture and dynamic length.
"Aromas of fresh peaches leap from the glass along with hints of ginger and lilac. Once sipped, a shower of foamy bubbles dance soulfully on the tip of your tongue and then burst into a medley of crisp citrus fruit."
