Description

The 2016 Fesstivity Brut Cuvee is a gorgeous blend of pinot noir (67%) and chardonnay (33%) from Rio Vista and Parker West vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Extended time en tirage has amplified the satisfying aromas of pie crust and biscuit with complementary hints of kumquat, honey suckle and lemon meringue.  The fine, persistent bubbles deliver delicate flavors of red apple, vanilla, Meyer lemon, golden delicious apple and lemon cream.
