2020 Cruse "Rancho Chimiles Vineyard" Napa Valley Valdiguie Sparkling Wine

SKU #1548780

Michael Cruse followed up his Champagne-inspired sparkling wine project, Ultramarine, established in 2008 with the creation of Cruse Wine Co. in 2013. Cruse Wine Co. was an opportunity for Michael to showcase fruit driven and satisfying wines that were fresh and pleasurable, but still remained serious at the same time. The roots of the North Coast run deep with Michael, so he chose to focus on sites within Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Contra Costa Counties to create these special wines. The one thing he didn’t want to do was to create another Pinot Noir or Cabernet; instead he found inspiration in varieties such as Valdiguie, Tannant, Carignan, and St. Laurent. Michael is a believer that sparkling and petillant natural wines are the true lens into the vineyard and its place. The Cruse Tradition Sparkling wine is made in the same traditional ways as Ultramarine, but sourced from interesting sites that don’t necessarily match the coastal vineyards of Ultramarine. The petillant natural wines are a beautiful departure from what many associate, or expect, from this style of wine. Crafted from single vineyard plantings of Valdiguie and St Laurent, the pet-nats are produced from grape juice only with nothing else added. They have a higher carbonation than most, typically around 6 bars of pressure, and with 6 grams or below of residual sugar. Finished alcohols are in the 11.0-11.5 range. The wines are also disgorged.
