2019 Sparkling Chenin

VINEYARD:100% Chenin Blanc from Massa Estate (Carmel Valley). 40-year-old vines, dry-farmed, certified organic, grown at 1500 feet above sea level.

The grapes were harvested at 19.1 brix. It clocks in at 12% ABV.

WINEMAKING: The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels. The wines were aged for 5 months before being bottled for secondary fermentation. It was then aged 12 months en tirage before being disgorged by hand at our winery. No part of our process is automated or outsourced to another facility. This sparkler has the pressure of a Cremant. No dosage was added. We produced 4 barrels. 

TASTING NOTES: White nectarine, pear, lemon peel.

WHAT'S IN A NAME: Always For Pleasure is a film by Les Blank (one of our favorite filmmakers, who lived in Berkeley for 30 years). He dedicated his career to filming movies about fascinating people on the periphery of society. His style of verite film was joyful, quiet and compassionate, values we uphold in our winemaking and in our lives.
