Sea Smoke Sea Spray Blanc de Noirs Sta. Rita Hills Sparkling Pinot Noir 2014

$89.99

A rare sparkling wine from Santa Barbara cult producer Sea Smoke. Limited. The Pinot Noir for this methode champenoise sparkling wine from Sea Smoke is the result of a careful cluster selection from their estate vineyard. The grapes were gently pressed following an evening in our cold room, then transferred to stainless tanks to begin a long, cool fermentation, which was completed in once-used and neutral French oak barrels. Following six months of sur lie aging in barrel, the wine was bottle aged an additional 16 months en tirage prior to disgorging. The wine was finished with no dosage, to preserve its finesse. The nuanced nose expresses cranberries, lavender, fresh bread and lemon curd. The wine enters the palate with energetic freshness and finishes with delightful length. A limited and rare release from Sea Smoke!

Make sure you get it really cold. These bottles have a reputation to foam over even with care.

Brighter than the last 2 vintages. Pure Apple aromas and a very crisp palate with excellent bubble consistency
