This inaugural vintage is crafted using méthode champenoise sourced from estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This blend combines the structure and vibrancy of Pinot Noir with the finesse and roundness of Chardonnay. The wine was aged on its lees for 23 months to develop added complexity before being disgorged.

Founder Jim Bernau's daughter, Emi, helped design a family crest for the label taking inspiration from their heritage and the biodynamic farming practices used at Bernau Estate Vineyard.

On the Nose: Fine bubbles elevate an inviting bouquet of golden apple, shortbread, white florals and zesty ginger.

On the Palate: Attractive apricot and citrus notes meld seamlessly on the palate with almond and brioche flavors gained from extended sur lie aging. The creamy and elegant structure combined with bright acidity carry these flavors through the lingering vibrant finish.

Food Pairings: Enjoy in a toast during a celebration, or on its own before the start of a meal. Pair with delicate seafood dishes like fresh oysters, sashimi and grilled scallops or salty, creamy or nutty foods like fried calamari or chicken, Caesar salad and soft cheeses.
