2018 Willamette Valley BrutProduced by LandmassPortland - Oregon
Melaney and Malia of Landmass produce some of our very favorite wines, and this brand new release is another home run. A vibrant méthode champenoise comprising 35% organic Dundee Hills Pinot Noir and 65% Willamette Valley Chardonnay, it is full of aromas of waxy apple skins, summer plum and almond. Meyer lemon on the palate complements the bouquet, and persistent bubbles lend themselves to a playful mousse. This wine saw 8 months in neutral barrel and 30 months in tirage, with 2g/L dosage at bottling. If you're looking for something special to pop, you'd be hard pressed to do better than this bright, lifted, elegant "champagne."
