About This Item

Vineyard

Blackjack Vineyard is owned and farmed by the Rava family, a third-generation farming family. Ideally situated on a gently sloping hillside of the Santa Lucia range in Monterey County, the vineyard enjoys foggy mornings and warm days followed by late afternoon coastal breezes and chilly nights. These cool temperatures allow the grapes to ripen slowly over a prolonged growing season, resulting in expressive, aromatic fruit. 

Winemaking

Rava sparkling wines are crafted using time-honored methode champenoise techniques. The cuvee, or base wine for this sparkler consists of 100% Pinot Noir grapes, which were barrel fermented in a combination of neutral French and American oak barrels. The cuvee, along with a mixture of sugar, yeast and nutrients, was bottled for the second fermentation where it benefited from contact with the lees. The wine was then riddled and disgorged using state-of-the-art equipment at the Rava sparkling wine facility. A small dosage was added before the sparkling wine was corked. 

Tasting Notes

This Blanc de Noir displays a fine stream of bubbles and a faint touch of color from the Pinot Noir grape skins. Crisp, clean aromas of golden raspberry and kiwi mingle with inviting yeasty notes. On the palate, soft notes of star fruit and honeydew melon are enveloped in a nicely balanced texture with a remarkably creamt finish.
