Celebrate every occasion with the 2016 Ponzi Brut Rosé. This gorgeous sparkling wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir fruit grown at our highest elevation site at Merten Vineyards. For the last three years we have been defining the new normal with early vintages in the Willamette Valley. 2016 jumped out of the gate with bud break a full 3 weeks earlier than what we are accustomed to. Flowering was condensed by a heat spell and an early summer gave us beautiful warm temperatures until August when it heated up. Harvest arrived later that month and was in full swing by early September. All fruit was in the door by the first part of October.
"This attractive nose of mandarin, kumquat, rose petal, pink peppercorn, orange peel and salty sea air leads to a mouth equally enticing; strawberry parfait, candied lemon, beeswax and a touch of anise finishing with a cranberry bright acid giving freshness and finesse"
