ABOUT THIS WINE

Produced by the renowned Wagner Family of Wines, this non-vintage bubbly is made using the traditional method, just like they do it in Champagne. With 40 months of aging before disgorgement, it boasts superb complexity, luxurious creaminess, and super fine, focused bubbles.
The blend is 65% Chardonnay and 35% Pinot Noir, sourced from cooler coastal regions of California, yielding a wine that is both toasty and zesty. It pops with flavors of ruby red grapefruit, crisp green apple, fresh pear, Nilla wafers, lemon pith, and a gentle mineral-like savory salinity.
