Rio Vista Vineyard & Sierra Madre Vineyards Santa Barbara County

In celebration of 10 years of Goat Bubbles we released our inaugural 2013 Brut Cuvée

in 2015. We use the term cuvée to specifically indicate a blend, a wine produced from a

mixture of several grape varieties, rather than a varietal wine. Our other four sparklers

are single varietal and single vineyard. Thus, our cuvée will vary in the blend from year

to year and always be a pleasant surprise. The 2014 is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir Clone

2A from Rio Vista Vineyard and 25% Chardonnay Clone 15 from Sierra Madre Vineyard.

 

Tasting Notes

Get ready for a bubbles ballet! This sophisticated sparkler is a lovely sun kissed peach

color with notes of red delicious apples, pear blossom and apricots, enhanced by a

toasty aroma, on the nose. It’s elegant on the palate, with limestone minerality and hints

of persimmon on the finish. Angels on horseback is the perfect hors d'oeuvre to pair with

this sparkler. Lox, bagels, cream cheese and capers or flounder sautéed with a light

cream sauce are other yummy pairings. It’s ideal for your anniversary toast!
