Blanc de Blanc is our sparkling wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes from the sandy-soil Mormann Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. The cool climate fruit retains excellent acid balance at harvest, which is done by hand in early August.

In the winery we use a special press cycle to squeeze the juice very slowly and gently to extract minimal phenolics.

After pressing, the juice is cold settled overnight and then racked to barrels for primary fermentation and aging. The wine is aged in oak for eight months and a partial malolactic fermentation is allowed. We also stir lees during the first few months of elevage to build texture and weight.

This is our second disgorgement of this wine, with an additional year of time on lees.  We employ the traditional Champagne Method for our sparkling wines and this wine was en tirage, or aged on lees in bottle for four years before disgorging in November of 2020.

The resulting wine is elegant, complex, and fresh, with gorgeous finesse. Our 2016 Blanc de Blanc seems transparent, with almost savory herbal and mineral flavors rather than the richer fruit tones that can be found sparkling wines with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.  No dosage was added at disgorgement.

The wine is harmoniously well-balanced and full-bodied. Initial flavors of green apple and citrus fruit prevail, however these give way to yeasty brioche and creamy aromas of butter and meringue. There is an overall impression of delicious complexity. The finish is vibrant and long.
