2012 OGV Estate Blanc de Noir
The success of the first Inman Family sparkling wine from our Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV) estate in 2009, a Brut Rosé Nature, led us to produce not only a Brut Rosé in 2012, but also a Blanc de Noir. Single vineyard, single vintage sparkling wines are unusual 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.
All the grapes are coming from the organically farmed Olivet Grange Vineyard, allowing for the truest expression of terroir in a crisp, bone-dry wine that pairs beautifully with food. Bright notes of green apple and lemon are balanced with nutty, toasty undertones. Inman also just disgorged a new 2014 blanc de noir just in time for the holiday season, called Whole Buncha Bubbles.
