Bottling

Bottling Dates: May 21 - June 4, 2007

Aging

In 2009, when we originally released this bottling, we held back a small number of these bottles for extended aging in our historic Diamond Mountain Caves. After ten years of contact with the yeast, this sparkling wine has gracefully developed exquisite richness, depth and complexity. Aging: 10 years
