Rouge de Noirs

Carneros

 

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

In the tradition of Walter Schug’s home estate in Germany, we offer this Sparkling Pinot Noir as a celebration of the intense yet delicate flavors the Pinot Noir grape has to offer. Like a Brut Rosé only darker, this “saignée method” bubbly has vibrant berry flavors and a brilliant red color rarely found in sparkling wine. The cuvée of 100% Pinot Noir achieves its color and intense flavor through a three-day “cold-soak” of juice and skins. Only the free-run juice is cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks, followed by a second fermentation in bottle, or “méthode traditionnelle” — the same as in Champagne. The dosage is kept to a minimum to allow the vibrant flavors of Pinot Noir to shine through. Rouge de Noirs embodies the true essence of Pinot Noir – a wine we produce “for the love of it!”

“The perfect Thanksgiving wine. It’s American, it sparkles, and it goes with everything on the holiday plate.”
