TASTING NOTES

By nose: Raspberry, mandarin orange peel and nutmeg. By mouth: Stone fruit, pink grapefruit, Tahitian lime, blood orange, raspberry with a gentle mouthfeel. A food friendly wine that works with many different styles, sauces and preparations. Pairs well with full flavored fish, pork chops, and chicken. Also try with crispy kale and stir fried vegetables. All you really need is dark, bittersweet chocolate!


WINEMAKER NOTES

Wedding Cuvée is our interpretation of a Blanc de Noirs. In blending this wine we chose Pinot Noir lots that were extremely expressive and fruit forward. Then in a decided step away from convention, we blend in a bit of steely Chardonnay to add a firm acid backbone. Hand harvested in the chill of early morning our Pinot Noir is gently pressed as whole clusters. The juice slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks at 62° to 65°f retaining bright fruit aro-mas and flavors in the wine. The dosage for the 2015 Wedding Cuvée is 7 mls Blanc de Noirs Lex and 4 ml 2016 Rued Chardonnay.
