Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dry. Golden Russet provides the weight in the cuvee, Northern Spy the tannin and Jonagold a bright fruity component. Bottle fermented for a creamy mousse.
Vineyard Notes
2018 had a devastating spring frost that reduced apple yields and shortened the growing season. This vintage shows concentration and bright acidity resulting from the unique growing season.
