  • 2018 Extra Brut Rosé
    SLO Coast / Avila Beach / Topotero Vineyard
    Winemaking Notes. The 2018 Extra Brut Rosé is composed of 100% Pinot Noir from Topotero Vineyards. The grapes were crushed and cold soaked for several hours to lightly extract color from the grape skins before gently pressing. The base wine was fermented and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 9 months. In spring of 2019 this cuvee was bottled by hand and went on to age for 30 months on its yeast lees en tirage (in bottle). Each bottle was riddled and disgorged by hand and a small dosage of 3 g/L was added. 100 cases produced. Vineyard Notes. Topotero Vineyard is a family-owned, organically farmed vineyard situated just 1.5 miles from the Pacific in Avila Beach. The maritime climate of this area has a heavy influence on the growing conditions of these vines. The combination of foggy mornings, sunny days, and breezy afternoons makes it ideal for capturing the freshness of flavors and acidity in pinot noir that we covet in sparkling wine production. These blocks were planted in 2000 on ancient seabed with silty clay/loam soils. Tasting Notes. Pure aromas of cut grapefruit, white flowers and sea air emerge from the mousse of this sparkling Rosé. Pale pink in color with mouthwatering flavors of crisp strawberry, lime zest, sea salt, and minerality. Elegant and bright today and will gain complexity for many years to come.
