Goat Bubbles, Crémant

Sierra Madre Vineyard
2012

Our 2012 Crémant is made from the peppy Pinot Blanc clone 159 from Sierra Madre Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA. Pinot Blanc grape is a white wine grape that is a point genetic mutation of Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is genetically unstable and will occasionally experience a point mutation in which a vine bears all black fruit except for one cane which produced white fruit. We include this grape in our portfolio because it fits with our love of working with Pinot Noir and the vibrant fresh fruit flavors and refreshing acidity of Pinot Blanc make it a perfect grape for sparkling wine. From a winemaking standpoint, Pinot Blanc from Santa Maria Valley produces elegant fruit forward still wines and we decided to try it in a sparkler. This is our third vintage of Crémant and we have noticed changes in the fruit each year.
Tasting Notes
The bubbles are like a Texan tornedo! This vintage of Crémant reveals white grapefruit and Asian pear on the nose with a hint of peach. The youthful, crisp wine has refreshing acids and subtle minerality on the palate, with refreshing flavors of honeydew. We recommend it for a summertime picnic or Sunday brunch. Also pairs nicely with spicy Thai food, sushi, mahimahi with chutney or mild cheese plate.
