Sparkling Wines

  • Cuvee Brut 2006

    With an emphasis on craftsmanship, Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard produces distinctive sparkling wines in the traditional method. Extended lees contact builds weight and texture on the palate and perhaps no sparkling wine in our portfolio exhibits that texture and complexity like the 2006 Cuvée Brut.

    Bottled in August of 2007, the Cuvée Brut 2006 spent ten years ageing on its lees prior to disgorgement. This final disgorgement shows subtle orchard fruit aromas, beneath layers of brioche toast, and a custard-like density on the palate.

    With an emphasis on craftsmanship, Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard produces distinctive sparkling wines in the traditional method. Extended lees contact builds weight and texture on the palate. A focus on early ripeness underpins subtle fruit notes with a vibrant structure. The Pinot Noir for our Blanc de Noir 2013 was sourced from early picks in our Magdalena Vineyard. It spent 41 months on the lees, softening slightly en tirage and developing notes of strawberry preserve and soft dough biscuits.

    Specially selected Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes blend beautifully to create the base wine for this sparkling brut. Red fruit melds with ripe citrus and honeysuckle while crisp bubbles lead to a refreshingly clean finish. No matter the occasion, our Cuvee Brut is a cheerful addition to any toast.

  • Blanc de Blanc 2013

    Our classic 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blanc is clean and racy. A grapefruit peel nose hints at its dominant citrus acidity while seventy months on the lees prior to disgorgement has broadened the aromatics considerably. Look for notes of peppermint and brioche on the finish, especially once the bottle has had time to open up.
