This is winemaker Dianna Novy Lee's debut sparkling wine, blending 56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir and then aging the wine on the lees for three years before release. It impresses from first sip, showing acid-driven raciness and a core of green apple, lime zest and biscuit flavors that linger. It'll serve well as a delicious aperitif or fitting companion for the table.
