The best sparkling blocks were hand harvested in the cool morning hours at the Pipers Brook Vineyard. The fruit reflected the exceptional year of 2017 for sparkling fruit, 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 create a wine of beauty and complexity. Made in the Traditional Method, this wine underwent secondary ferment in bottle and was then aged more than 2 years in these bottles before release.
