Mirabelle Brut (1 x 750 ml)
Unlike our vintage bottlings, Mirabelle gains unique richness from blending additions of aged base wines, stored in barrels and tanks at the winery from prior vintages. These older lots add significant palate richness and aromatic complexity. Starting in 2022, the Mirabelle packaging started to designate the bottling number to give specificity to each bottling of Mirabelle, and to highlight the vintage which is primarily in the blend. For this 32nd bottling, the 2020 vintage makes up 78% of the blend, with the other 22% coming from select previous vintage lots.
This flavorful, bright bubbly exhibits the crisp acidity and vibrant apple/citrus fruit that is characteristic of cool-climate Chardonnay. Pinot Noir adds body to the palate and further depth of fruit flavor. The grapes for Mirabelle are grown in the cool-climate pockets of Californias North Coast, including the Napa-Carneros, Sonoma Coast, Anderson Valley, and Marin County. The fruit is hand-picked in the early morning hours at optimal maturity. Individual lot fermentations allow the winemakers to carefully select the components that make up the finished blend. After bottle fermentation and two years of aging en tirage, subsequent trials determine the ideal dosage to finish this brut style.
Mirabelle Brut is delicious as a dry apéritif and is also well-suited as an accompaniment to a broad range of foods, including oysters on the half shell, sushi, baked halibut, country fried chicken, cream-based pasta dishes, fruits, nuts and cheeses.

This Mirabelle Brut presents a medley of aromas, including orange zest, yellow apple, and seared grapefruit, which are intertwined with notes of lemon custard, sugar cookie, marzipan, and vanilla. On the palate, a bright entry of Meyer lemon and tangerine leads to a generous and juicy midpalate of key lime and candied apple, all leading to great length on the finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson, Jessica Koga and Hugh Davies
