Description

"This blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from the Fess Parker team offers lemon blossom, baking soda and lime zest aromas on the light and flowery nose. Broad flavors of yellow apple and pear meet with a citrus twist on the finish." ~ Wine Enthusiast  

Our most complex sparkling wine to date the 2014 Fesstivity Brut Cuvee is comprised of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. The wine benefited from additional time en tirage and it’s exciting to see the results and the potential this growing area has for exceptional sparkling wine.  You will note the pale straw color of this wine as well as the fine persistent bubbles. The nose hints at baked apples and pears, baking spices, brioche, citrus and white peach. Lemon cream and citrus dominate the palate but they are rounded out nicely with flavors of roasted cashew and nectarine.
