Our Brut Reserve blend often comprises a proportion of ‘non classic varietals’ Seyval Blanc, Madeline Angevine and Reichensteiner and Bacchus. Germanic in origin, these varieties often ripen before the noble Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.
After basket-style pressing the must is cold fermented in small-scale vats. The wine has often fermented to dryness before its remaining constituent grapes have even been harvested. Assemblage takes place the following year enabling a balance of acidity and complexity between each complimenting grape variety.
