The Six Peaks Blanc de noir sparkling wine is made from Pinot noir grapes grown in the Chehalem Mountains. Winemaker Andrew Albin used the same technique as they do in France when making Champagne, called Méthode champenoise (pronounced meh·thuhd sham·pən·wah). This winemaking style ensures many, many bubbles in your glass.
It’s no surprise that this wine has all the bubbles you could ever ask for! I taste notes of ripe strawberries, sour cherries, tangerine and lime zests along with marzipan. It is bright with generous acidity and a long, tart finish. This is a steal of a deal so stock up and enjoy sipping this bubbles all through 2021!
Food pairing suggestions:
Sashimi, white truffle potato chips, cheese board, fried chicken.
