ABOUT THIS WINE

The Pinot Noir here was picked to be sparkling. It comes in so tart you can barely taste it. They ferment the wine to dryness and then barrel down for malolactic fermentation. Both primary and secondary fermentation occur with native yeast. Days before the bottling they restart the fermentation by adding sugar to the wine. This creates an estimated 4 atmospheres of pressure. (For reference champagne usually has 6-8 atm). And violá! Sparkling. The wine is non disgorged in order to maintain time on the lees.
