Closson Chase Vineyards
2021 Mosaic Charmat Method
Charmat method sparkling from 100% Chardonnay. 50% cool ferment in stainless steel at 16 degrees for 10 days. 60 days on lees, 50% in neutral oak barrels.
Fresh apple and citrus with floral tones lead to a fresh wet stone on the nose. Tree fruits and anise tones appear on the mouth. The creamy mousse cleanses the palate and leads to a pleasant, defined finish where beautiful acidity brings everything together.
"Aromas of citrus—lime, lemon and blood orange—are joined by mineral notes and notions of baking brioche, nutty notes and spent yeast cells. There’s refreshing palate flavours of lime cordial, a green Granny Smith apple and plenty of tang and pizzazz. It finishes with an addition of minerality and the aftertaste adds on a lingering crisp and clean flavour of citrus and tang."
