Sparkling Brut Rosé
Treasured for its gorgeous color, this Brut Rosé offers vibrant aromas of red current and boysenberry with accents of pomegranate and rose petals. The lush bubbles are accentuated by hints of black cherry and strawberry rhubarb capped by a crisp, clean finish.
Black Jack 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.
Rava sparkling wines are crafted using time-honored méthode champenoise techniques. The cuvée, or base wine for this sparkler consists of Chardonnay grapes, which were fermented in small stainless steel barrels. A small amount of red wine made up of estate grown Italian varietals was added to the cuvée, for the second fermentation. The wine was 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.
