NV Charmat

  • Description

    Welcoming our inaugural sparkling... Charmat.

    This Non-vintage (NV) Charmat sparkling wine project was first conceived as harvest began in 2016. Our intention was to experiment with extended maturation in bulk, rather than bottle, and what the effect that multiple vintage blending might have on the sparkling wine library base. Small volumes of sparkling wine base were made in vintages from 2016-2022, aged separately in neutral French oak, being topped and tasted very sparingly. In Spring of 2023, we racked and blended each vintage together to bottle a portion using traditional method, and isolated a portion to be done with the Charmat method. The balance of the sparkling library base was returned to neutral French oak barrels for new Spring blending material every year going forward. Our hope is to maintain this solera sparkling program in perpetuity.
