Winemaking: The grapes were hand picked then pressed separately. The apple juice was purchased from Ryan Farms and cold shipped to the winery. The Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Apple Juice were natively fermented as individual lots in neutral French Oak Barriques. After malolactic and a brief aging on fermentation lees, all eight barrels were blended together and carbonated to 4.5 bars of pressure. The resulting sparkling wine holds a bubble for days.
