2018 Sparkling Pinot Meunier

Although Pinot Meunier is one of three major varietals used in crafting super-premium sparkling wines, it is typically part of an overall blend. While a great complement to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this varietal is delightfully expressive on its own.


This wine opens with aromas of orange, apricot, and freshly baked bread. Notes of plum and red apple in the background remind you this is made from red grapes. On the palate, the wine bursts with red apples and toast, with a hint of strawberry jam for complexity. The frothy attack and round mid-palate make this a great wine for food pairing.


Make a cheese board with chunks of Parmigiano Reggiano, dried fruit and nuts, and toast the start of a holiday evening or enjoy paired with fresh Dungeness Crab, a favorite winter delicacy.
