Vinification: This sparkling wine is made as a Pétillante-naturel (or Pet-nat), which is to say it’s made in the “methode ancestrale” style. Aged in bottle. 
Vineyard: Shell Creek Vineyard - Shell Creek Vineyard has sandy top soil and calcareous fossilized sea shells underneath. It was planted in 1972, and owned by the same family (Sinton Family), since the late 1800’s. The vineyard is SIP certified – it is sustainably farmed with no spraying of round-up.
Winemaker Notes: We used the Petillant Natural method for making our sparkling Chenin Blanc. We pressed whole clusters into stainless steel and fermented the wine until it reached 15 grams of sugar. Then we chilled the wine down to stop fermentation and bottled the juice. As it warmed up, fermentation began again in bottle. Wine spent 4 months in bottle, and was disgorged by hand with no dosage.
