Made entirely from Verdejo (Spain’s other white grape) , this bubbly is both unique and familiar. The nose is equal parts citrus, stone fruit and green apple. On the palette, the bright acidity is a nice compliment to the texture created by the traditional champenoise method (that's the old-school way of making bubbles). The finish helps frame the mineral notes that make Verdejo so unique.
We're not prone to exageration around here...but this just might be the only sparkling verdejo made in the Méthode Champenoise style outside of Spain. Let that sink in. Not only have we taken a grape that is virtually unknown in the states, we used a centuries-old technique to make it into a sparkling wine. Now for the particulars. After harvest and the initial fermentation, the wine was aged for seven months in stainless steel - followed by three months in bottle (during which time the bottle fermentation and riddling were completed). The final alcohol content is 11.2% by volume and a total of 127 cases were produced.
