Benediction

$30

This traditional method sparkling wine was crafted from 100% estate grown Geisenheim318. Made in the traditional method, this wine was fermented first in stainless steel then again in bottle.  Fermented to a lower pressure than most traditional method sparklers this wine was modeled after German Sekt.  The chalky minerality of our estate gypsum sub-soil really shows through in this wine.

On the nose this wine shows notes of green apple, key lime, grapefruit, and chalk. The palate is clean, crisp, and refreshing with citrus and mineral notes leading to a long chalky finish. Pairs well with everything, but is best enjoyed with oysters on the half shell or seafood tartare.
