The Bubble Bundle
The perfect gift - even if it is just for yourself! Three bottles of Inman sparkling wine: the 2014 OGV Estate Brut Rosé, the highly acclaimed 2012 OGV Estate Blanc de Noir, and the new 2014 Whole Buncha Bubbles Blanc de Noir.
2014 OGV Estate Brut Rosé
Always a favorite in our tasting room (and a favorite of Kathleen's), this small lot of only 44 cases of méthode champenoise brut rosé sparkling wine is 100% Pinot Noir; it has a luscious mousse and a very fine bead. The colour is the palest of pink; the nose has all of the hallmarks of Olivet Grange fruit, including hints of fresh citrus, strawberry, tart cherry, and brioche. A bright core of acid, along with a rich mouthfeel and a long finish showing great minerality, leave a clean, crisp palate impression. We see this not only as an apéritif, but as a serious food wine for a main course or a dessert.
2012 OGV Estate Blanc de Noir
Single vineyard, single vintage sparkling wines are unique in California. Our goal was to make a grower Champagne-style wine from our organically farmed estate vineyard. This small lot of elegant, food friendly méthode champenoise is 100% Pinot Noir. The wine has a very fine bead, almost no color--just the palest hay-colored tint--and wonderful aromas of caramelized apple crumble on the nose. On the palate, green apple moves towards lemon meringue pie and then finishes with seashells and a chalky minerality: a clean, crisp palate impression. The acidity is very bright and creates a pleasing structure for this linear, focused wine. Only 266 cases were produced.
2014 Whole Buncha Bubbles Blanc de Noir
Like our acclaimed 2012 Blanc de Noir, the 2014 Whole Buncha Bubbles is 100% OGV Estate Pinot Noir from our organically farmed vineyard. This small lot of elegant, food friendly méthode champenoise is 100% Pinot Noir. After nearly three years on the yeast, this sparkling wine is incredibly aromatic, complex, and has a very fine bead (LOTS of tiny bubbles...in fact you could say - a "Whole Buncha" tiny bubbles!). Only 166 cases of Whole Buncha Bubbles were produced.
