The 2012 Lumina is the third vintage of this unique sparkling wine made from Nebbiolo in the traditional "methode champenoise." The grapes were grown for Palmina at the Rancho Sisquoc vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley and picked earlier than grapes for Palmina's still wines to retain the natural acidity of the grape and still showcase the spice and fruit profile of the varietal.
2012 Gruet Gilbert Grande Reserve, Methode Champenoise Vintage Sparkling Wine 750 mL
Manufacturer: Gruet Winery
The Gilbert Gruet Grande Reserve is our winemaker Laurent Gruet's signature wine. He has dedicated it to his late father. Made from free-run juice that comes from the oldest Chardonnay vines in our vineyards, this rare style of sparkling wine is made in the tete de cuvee Champagne style. The wine is fermented and aged in French oak for 6 months. It is aged en tirage for at least 3 years, and the result is a pleasantly complex sparkling wine. This wine is the most limited production in the Gruet lineup, and is truly a collector's item!
