This is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, of specially selected clones for sparkling wine production. The grapes were sourced from our vineyards in Tupungato, planted at 5000' elevation. The Chardonnay base wine offers intense aromatics of white flowers and citrus and a remarkably good length. The Pinot Noir counterpart ensures a good acid balance adding structure and complexity to the final blend. In addition the "liqueur de tirage" imparts freshly baked bread aromatics that unfold on the palate, with a soft, creamy finish.
