The best sparkling blocks were hand harvested in the cool morning hours at the Pipers Brook Vineyard. The fruit reflected the exceptional year of 2010, low crops, a dry but cool growing season, and the beautiful Pipers Brook region produced fruit of power and purity. Cool fermented to retain these exceptional fruit characters, some parcels were selected for fermentation and aging in barrel. Hand crafted this wine was blended from only the best individual parcels to and create a wine of beauty and complexity. Made in the Traditional Method this wine underwent secondary ferment in bottle and was then aged for six years in these bottles before release.
