WINEMAKER NOTES: Given that some of the best Champagnes are made from the Pinot noir grape, we were intrigued to see what a non-bubbly white Pinot noir would taste like. Since the red color is only in the skins, the utmost care must be taken to gently press hand-picked grapes immediately after harvesting. To avoid oxygen exposure and to keep the wine crisp and fresh, we carefully fermented and aged the wine in stainless steel tanks. For perfect balance and added complexity, we blended in a touch of our unoaked Chardonnay.
