M. Lawrence Sex Brut NV

Winemaker's Notes:

"A provocative blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes that are hand picked and carefully whole-cluster pressed. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks, then blended with reserve wines and fermented a second time in a closed tank [the cuve close method]. The wine is then filtered, dosaged, and bottled. 12% alc. by vol. 750 ml. "

Our goal has always been to produce the finest wines possible. We strive to make wines that express the unique soil and climate in which they grow, the personal attention they are given in vineyard and wine cellar, and the winegrower’s esthetic. Our wines are living things, raised with care, giving voice to our joie de vivre. We have produced estate grown and bottled Leelanau Peninsula wines since our first crush in the fall of 1978. Now we make entirely methode champenoise and cuve close method sparkling wines. Many wines are from our estate vineyards; however, we are producing wines from grapes purchased from other vineyards. Our current annual production is less than 8000 cases: this modest volume allows us the pleasure of winemaking in the style we enjoy - small lots made with minimal handling. All of our L. Mawby sparkling wines are made using the methode champenoise, and are aged in the bottle before disgorging, with many cuvees being given 3 or more years of tirage aging. Our M. Lawrence sparkling wines are produced in the cuve close method, are given less aging, and are less costly than the method champenoise sparkling wines. Read less

Nice sparkling. Bubbles lasted for several days in the fridge. Good with mimosas, too. Shock value of the name is great for bridal showers. Bright and bold.

SEX, a famous rose sparkling wine from Northern Michigan. It is also most provocative wine offering. This bubbly is produced from selected wine grapes from various vineyards, which are hand-harvested and whole-cluster pressed. Only the initial, gently pressed fractions of the juice are used for this cuve. Finished with a Brut dosage (1.4 % residual sugar) the wine has ripe soft-fruit scents, fine pinot fruit flavors and a clean, rounded finish. Great summer outdoor or any occasion bubbly. We love SEX!

I was just down in D.C. and a few of the restaurants (CityZen and POV) carried this rose sparkling wine. I liked it so much I'm trying to find where I can buy it for home!

Used to drink this before I knew what good wine was. Good value, though.
