This wine has a pleasant, yeasty toastiness on the nose, complemented by aromas of golden delicious apples, orange and Meyer lemon.
The delicate mousse is followed by soft and creamy vanilla, apricot and apple notes. The bright acidity leads into a long finish, accented with hints of fresh bread and honey.
While Chardonnay is the most common varietal used in sparkling wine, this Sparkling Chardonnay is anything but ordinary. Crafted in collaboration with the entire Mumm Napa winery team, this wine is comprised exclusively of Chardonnay grapes, selected from our best lots, from an exceptional vintage.
After two and a half years aging on the yeast, we invited our staff to join the winemaking team in crafting the dosage. Addition of dosage is the last step in the winemaking process, which gives the wine its final balance and finesse.
Enjoy this wine with a family-style meal of crab au gratin, ricotta ravioli with a lemon cream sauce, or roasted fish.
