The mouth feel is slightly creamy from the secondary fermentation in the bottle, with a light flintiness. Dry on the palate, it finishes crisp and clean.
The same varietals from Evolution white were harvested, processed and fermented with sparkling wine production in mind. These special wines were then blended into a single interesting base wine, put into bottle, and a little more yeast was added for an additional fermentation in the bottle. This fermentation resulted in the beautiful bubbles that we all look forward to when opening and sharing a sparkling wine. After fermentation in bottle is complete, each bottle is individually opened to put a little splash of sweetness in to create a balanced wine.
