2019 Blanc de Noir Sparkling
Our first estate-grown sparkling wine, this second iteration of Spirito is made with 100% Pinot Noir from our Yamhill-Carlton Trovato Vineyard. A gorgeous golden hue in the glass (the result of just a hint of skin contact during pressing) our Blanc de Noir opens with notes of white peach and persimmon, while more dulcet aromas of honey and blanched almond follow. In the mouth, this méthode Champenoise sparkler, grown in marine sedimentary Willakenzie soil, offers a fine mousse filled with flavors of ripe pear and apricot, backed up by a refreshing saline minerality. The mouthwatering acidity on the finish is sure to add liveliness to your meal - finding a perfect accompaniment to raw oysters or baked Brie. This is the first of three planned disgorgements, so there’s plenty to look forward to!
