Description

Our most complex sparkling wine to date the 2015 Fesstivity Brut Cuvee is comprised of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% 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 golden hue color of this wine as well as the fine persistent bubbles. The nose hints at apples and honey, marzapan, freshly baked bread, almond skin and vanilla. Baked apple and orange zest dominate the palate but are rounded out nicely with flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, brioche and piecrust.
