Whispering Horse Seyval Blanc Sparkling 2016
This complex sparkling brut derives from our ½ acre single plot of Seyval Blanc that was planted in 2012 in soils composed of sandy loam and river stones. The grapes were hand-harvested and gently pressed. Made in the Traditional Method style, this wine aged on the lees for 42 months prior to being disgorged in the fall of 2020. This medium bodied, special reserve sparkling offers notes of tarte tatin, butterscotch, apricot, and orange blossom, with an angular purity in the mouth that leads through to a toasty mineral finish.
(85% Seyval Blanc and 15% Epicure; pH 3; TA 10.4; and residual sugar 12.7).
