Brick & Mortar 2017 'Block House Vineyard' Brut Rosé, Napa Valley, CA

  • Winemaker: Matt Iaconis

  • Farming: Organic

  • Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

  • Terroir: Block House Vineyard in Yountville AVA. Block House Vineyard was originally planted in 1836, and is thought to be amongst the oldest vineyards in all of Napa Valley. The eastern portion of the Yountville AVA is comprised of multiple alluvial bands of both sedimentary soils and clays as well as riddled with volcanic outcrops. With its close proximity to the San Pablo Bay, Block House Vineyard is a relative cool growing region, often times blanketed with cold wet air until the early afternoon; this cool climate allows sufficient hang time for this Brut Rosé.

  • Vinification: Traditional Method. The Pinot Noir is hand harvested and whole cluster pressed directly to barrel. Natively fermented with indigenous yeast, the base wine spends approximately 10 months in barrel. They blend in 4% of still Pinot Noir prior to tirage bottling. After 40 months sur latte, the wine is riddled and disgorged.

  • Dosage: 2 g/l

  • Tasting Note: On the nose, red cherry and almond blossom, strawberry, Chinese five spice, and chalky mineral tones. On the palate this wine is both powerful and subtle, spiced orange, cherry compote and ginger lead to fresh raspberry and salted watermelon.
