Stargazing Cuvee is vintage 2014, disgorged in October 2022. Amazingly, with the addition of Stargazing, we now produce 20 distinctive cuvees. Clearly we don’t think you can have too many. Our label designer Mark Berry outdid himself. The image is one of the first batch released By NASA, showing the “cosmic cliffs” of the Carina Nebula. The wine itself gives new meaning to drinking the stars.

93 Points. This bone dry, mineral-rich wine will start conversations and pair well with lots of fish and shellfish. Racy acidity, a tangy texture and light but bracing body are its hallmarks. Built for further aging, it should drink best from 2025–2035.Cellar Selection.
Aromas of fresh brioche and toasted almonds. This wine has lively tiny bubbles that rise up to create a perfect crown. Bright citrus notes on the front palate, Meyer lemons, persimmon and lemon curd, and kumquat on the mid palate with a gorgeous long finish.
Location. Location. Location. Our proximity to the ocean in cool, foggy Green Valley yields a very distinctive style of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, especially for Sparkling.
Hand harvested in the early morning, our Chardonnay and Pinot 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 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 7 1/2 plus years of aging on the yeast. The dosage for this wine is 2 ml Brut LEX, 12 ml 2019 Rued Clone Chardonnay.
Lighter than air, puffed up high and golden brown, it’s center still soft and molten, this is a swoon worthy dish to pair with Joy!View Recipe
