FITZ Blanc de Blancs 2018
The 2018 Reserve Blanc de Blancs is as crisp and refined as the packaging it wears. The 2018 vintage was very good to us with warm winds blowing up from the south to complement what was already a good growing season at Fitz.
This crisp and refined wine presented us with a debate at bottling. To dosage or not to dosage? Because of the warmth of the year, it was close to perfect in profile. But in the end, we added just the smallest dosage to round it out a little. It was the right call.
Our Reserve Sparkling wines are rested on lees longer than any other in our sparkling wine program at no less than 36 months. The result is real richness and complexity in the wine – a quality you can’t rush. The Fitz Reserve Blanc de Blancs is made using traditional methods from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay grapes from Greata Ranch Vineyard.
