description

50% Pinot Noir 50% Chardonnay

As as always, this wine is very limited. We select only the best barrels from our Santa Cruz Mountain vineyards to blend into this harmonious cuvée. The 2018 Corralitos Extra Brut exhibits loads of orange peel, apricots, almonds, and toffee. A small portion of reserved Corralitos from previous vintages is added back to the blend to create delicate layers that integrate into the finished wine.

Vineyards

Grapes are exclusively sourced from the Corralitos area of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Sandy soils and winds from the Monterey Bay result in unique and highly expressive wines. We have never found Pinot noir that is so expressive at sparkling levels of ripeness (much lower compared to still wine ripeness). This vintage includes Frances J Vineyards, Lester Vineyards, and Beauregard Vineyards.
