The 2018 Fitz Brut is made using traditional methods from 100% estate grown grapes from Greata Ranch Vineyard. Predominantly Chardonnay backed with Pinot Noir and Meunier. The Fitz Brut is normally aged in bottle for a minimum of 24 months on lees, however the 2018 Brut has aged in bottle for a minimum of 36 months of lees. Aromatics of Asian pear with lemon peel and a hint of brioche. Fine steady bubbles with a palate of crunchy stonefruit and crisp red apple acidity that brings depth and body. A nice balance of bright acidity and sweetness that holds a focused refreshing length.
Soil Types: Ratnip and Greata.
73 % Chardonnay, 25 % Pinot Noir, 2 % Meunier
Food Pairing Notes
Salmon gravlax, a few capers, maybe some pickled red onion.
