2017 SOFIA BLANC DE BLANCS

Sofia Blanc de Blancs is a delicate sparkling wine perfect for any celebration. Made from a blend of Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Muscat this wine offers seductive flavors, fresh aromatics and light effervescence – all packaged with striking, feminine flair.

VINEYARD NOTES

The growing season started early but saw a good deal of winter rain for the first time in years. The much-needed precipitation gave way to pleasant spring temperatures and a consistently warm summer. Though Monterey County is chilly compared to other California appellations, there’s always plenty of sun to help the fruit mature slowly so that it develops rich concentration and aromatic intensity.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

To achieve a graceful Prosecco-like character, the fruit for this sparkling wine is picked at a lower brix (sugar level), which by virtue lessens the alcohol content. The grapes are whole-cluster pressed into stainless steel tanks for primary fermentation. Once the wine is blended, it undergoes secondary fermentation to create effervescence using the Charmat method. Composed mainly of Pinot Blanc, the addition of Riesling and Muscat gives the wine fragrant notes of tropical fruits and honeysuckle.

TASTING NOTES

Made from a blend of Pinot Blanc, Riesling, and Muscat, Sofia Blanc de Blancs bestows fresh aromatics, elegant flavors, and light effervescence. Scents of crisp apple, nectarine, honeysuckle, and ginger. The flavors are airy with impressions of pear apricot and quince. The light character and delicate effervescence of this sparkling wine is highlighted by a mineral-lemon finish. Perfect for sipping poolside, at celebrations, or under the stars.
