Technical Data Appellation: Green Valley of Russian River Valley Blend: 70% Pinot Noir 30% Chardonnay Alcohol: 13.0% v/v Acidity: .85 g/100ml Residual Sugar: 0.69 g/100ml pH: 3.16 Malolactic Fermentation: None Barrels: 15% Barrel Fermented Winemaking: Hand harvested in the chilly fog of early morning, our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are gently pressed as whole clusters yielding base wines of great delicacy. The juice ferments slowly at 62° to 65° f retaining vibrant fruit esters. In blending this wine we chose Pinot Noir and Chardonnay lots that were a bit shy by nose but have lean and angular elements by mouth. What was once shy now exhibits wonderful complexity and creaminess that comes from four plus years of aging on the yeast. The dosage for this wine is 8 ml of Blanc de Blanc LEX. Tasting Notes & Food Pairings: By nose; fresh bread, apple blossom and nutmeg. By mouth; brisk acidity, green apple and ripe melon. Pair with raw oysters, Raw vegetables with warm butter or olive oil dipping sauce, French fries with sea salt, aioli or mayonnaise, Aged goat and sheep cheeses, Terrines and pates, Gravlox of salmon or halibut.
