Pinot Gris has always been an important blending wine for Mumm Napa, especially in the Blanc de Blancs program. It’s not often that it stands out so distinctly to bottle on its own. Our first ever sparkling Pinot Gris release is a vivid expression of this singular grape variety.
Aromas of red apple, melon, and juicy pear are complemented by a biscuit note from three years aging on the yeast. On the palate, an explosion of fresh fruit leads into a long and elegant finish with pleasant toastiness and a hint of minerality. The refreshing acidity and balanced structure invite you back for the next sip of this lively wine.
Pinot Gris has always been an important blending wine for Mumm Napa, especially in the Blanc de Blancs program. It’s not often that it stands out so distinctly to bottle on its own. In 2014, a special lot of Pinot Gris brought such a unique balance of ripe fruit and elegant structure and acidity that we thought it would be a shame to blend it away. We present to you our first ever sparkling Pinot Gris, a vivid expression of this singular grape variety.
Enjoy the last breath of summer with a platter of perfectly ripe melon and salty, delicious prosciutto. The fruitiness of the melon will accent the freshness of the wine, while the wine’s acidity will cut through the delicious complexity of the cured meat. The days may be getting shorter, but it’s no reason to enjoy them any less.
