Description

64% Pinot Noir and 36% Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Soft pink color with peach hues. Aromas of citrus blossom, strawberry, tangerine, fresh baked bread crust, with a hint of flint and fennel. The clean entry leads to a nice balance of acidity and texture. The wine finishes with a hint of lingering citrus.

Vineyard Notes

The still wine base for our Solstice Sparkling wine was blended from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown on our Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard in Carneros

Production Notes

The grapes were carefully sorted, whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented using 100% native yeast. The base wine spent 8 months in French oak barrels. The wine was then fermented a second time using the traditional “methode champenoise” which occurs in each individual bottle. The wine spent just over a year “en tirage” before being disgorged.
