13% – Tasting Notes:
Distinctive character, with rich palate coating textures and lots of layers and depth – this is benchmark Wine.
Grapes were picked early for bright acids and pressed in whole clusters. The juice was fermented in neural oak barrels and aged on its lees for 7 months before going to the tank for bottling. This sparkling wine is produced in the “Charmat” style, which is a French method for adding carbon dioxide to the wine under pressure.
Our 2017 Joyride is a blend of 95% Pinot Noir from Lia’s Vineyard, Chehalem Mountain AVA, and 5% Pinot Blanc from Yamhill Valley Vineyards, McMinnville AVA.
