Sourdough, pollen, and ice cream grave the nose layered over a base of melonny fruit. Noticeably sweet on entry,then a little spicy in the mouth with hints of honeysuckle, peach, and creamy melon fruit that leads to a lightly sweet finish. The muscat shows up more obviously on the finish. Easy to understand, easy to like. 87pts

This is full, rich and round, with refreshing bubbles that counter the sweetness of the fruit. The flavors have a slightly green edge. Suited to a seafood terrine.

A good sparkling wine, a bit scoury around the edges, but nice and dry, with a fancy finish. Shows crisp flavors of yeasty lees, limes, lemons, vanilla and smoke.

A nice everyday sparkler. Itandrsquo;s a little sweet and very forward in lime and strawberry flavors, with the yeast and toast complications of a fine sparkling wine.

Soft and creamy, with fresh, appealing kiwifruit, tropical fruit and yeasty spice flavors.

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine was exquisitely crafted with hand-harvested grapes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from our favorite Sonoma Vineyards. This viticultural diversity allows us to consistently produce cuvées with complexity and pure fruit expression. Grapes are whole-cluster pressed to avoid bitter compounds. Using 20% to 25% of the first press (première taille) adds richness and structure to the blend. Proprietary yeast for the secondary bottle fermentation provides a delicate house signature. The cuvée ferments in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 55 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and spends a year and a half aging on the yeast (en tirage).

Tasting Notes:

VA de VI is the stylish new méthode champenoise sparkling wine that celebrates our Spanish heritage. This ultra-premium cuvée adds new dimension to our house style. Elegant and refreshing, dry but not too dry, VA de VI is a classic blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with just a trace of Muscat. VA de VI captures the exuberant aromas and luscious flavors of perfectly ripened fruit and reveals them throughout a long, soft finish. The wine offers abundant aromas of ripe apple, Asian pear and Bing cherries amid enticing yeasty tones. On the palate, rich flavors of ripe peach, Meyer lemon, fresh berries and vanilla join with creamy textures in a lasting finish.
