Act two Recent Press

In 2009 we harvested Gewürztraminer at a perfect ripeness for sparkling wine. The grapes were whole cluster pressed, the juice cool fermented and we bottled 1,342 cases in the spring of 2010. After tirage, the wine in each bottle sat on the yeast, the byproduct of the secondary fermentation, which produces the fizz. In the spring of 2011 we disgorged 900 cases, leaving us with 420 cases to rest on the yeast an additional year thus enhancing the alluring toasty notes. Last year's 900 cases sold out in a matter of weeks, so please order quickly to enjoy Act two of this sparkler. This recently disgorged bubbly will make everyone smile, as it displays the same delicately floral Gewürztraminer fruit as the last release but with a richer toastiness; decidedly worthy of a standing ovation. Its flavors pair well with tarte flambée, chèvre with prosciutto and rillettes on crostini.

Gewürztraminer is Navarro's flagship grape. [above] Aging en tirage allows the intriguing flavor of autolyzed yeast to slowly develop in the wine.
