NV Cruse Wine Co. ‘Tradition’
Tasting Notes Only 15 cases allocated to the state of Georgia and we got one! Cruse wines are a cult favorite and a must have for the bubble affascinato - hand crafted, small production, and super allocated Champagne Method sparkling wine form California. Comprised of 54 percent Pinot Noir, 46 percent Chardonnay with 94 percent from the 2017 vintage and the remainder from their perpetual reserve. The vineyards used are Alder Springs, Rorick Vineyard, Keefer Ranch, and a small amount of fruit from Charlie Heintz. Cruse Tradition is a brut zero sparkler with only a small amount of sulfur added at disgorging. Golden, honeyed nose of toasted hazelnuts, pastry cream, and fresh pears. Gentle, soft mousse with a palate of white flowers, beeswax, and citrus. Long, pastry finish.
