Tasting Notes

Delightfully golden straw in color, this sparkling wine greets the nose with aromas of baked apple, lemon zest, white flowers, fresh bread and biscuit. On the palate, discover flavors of apple skin, white peach, hazelnut, brioche and lemon oil. Fine and persistent bubbles offer a delicate mousse with bright acidity that lifts the fruit on the palate before leading to a structured finish that is elegant and complex.

Vineyard Notes

King Estate’s Brut Cuvée is made from 100% estate grown, Biodynamic® grapes that are always the first harvested from our vineyard, picked early when the brix (a measure of sugar content) is low and acidity is high. Roughly translating to “dry blend,” our Brut Cuvée uses the first pressed and most desirable grape juice. Similar to the Champagne region in France, the Willamette Valley’s cool climate is ideal for growing fruit that is well suited for sparkling wine.

Winemaker Notes

Fermentation is méthode Champenoise. The base wine is fermented until dryness in stainless steel before undergoing a second fermentation in bottle. It is sur lie aged en tirage, or in bottle, for 36 months where it develops rich, complex flavors. Following riddling and disgorging, it is finished with a liqueur d’expedition. 61% Pinot Noir and 39% Chardonnay
