“93 Points. This subtle, intricate and bone-dry wine brings together enticing crisp apples and baking spices in the aroma. Tasty but restrained lemon zest, apple peel and toasted baguette notes highlight the palate, while crisp acidity gives an appetizing texture.” – Jim G.
“Your beautiful vineyard was always a favorite when my sister was in San Francisco. I couldn’t resist buying the Stargazing for gifts now that I’m working for the organization that manages the Webb (and Hubble). Thank you for all the celebrations you’ve helped make better through the years.”
A youthful exuberance jumps out of the glass with aromas of citrus blossoms and roasted nuts. Notes of kaffir lime leaves and orange rind dot the palate, while the finish shows some lovely lime curd, paired with a gorgeous creamy 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 and which had lean and angular elements by mouth, knowing how the base wine would evolve. What was once shy now exhibits wonderful complexity, elegance and creaminess that comes from 7 plus years aging on the yeast. The dosage is 6 ml Brut LEX, 12 ml 2020 Audrey 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
