2015 MAGNUM Extra Brut Luxe Cuvée
This beautiful 2015 Methode Champenoise sparkling wine is a marriage of Chardonnay from Jim Pratt's Irwin Lane Vineyard and Inman Family's Olivet Grange Vineyard (OGV). This is the first sparkling that Inman has produced which is not 100% estate Pinot Noir. This classic blend of 28% Chardonnay and 72% Pinot Noir manages to be bright and crisp with lots of fresh apple, pear, and alpine strawberries while at the same time being rich and complex as a result of nearly four years aging on the yeast. The fermentation in the bottle finished with 0.081% residual sugar and no additional sugar was added as a dosage. The generous mousse is created by the very fine bead. This serious, vintage-dated sparkler is the perfect wine to celebrate with or to pair with caviar and blinis or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
This 2015 vintage is named "Inman Sisters" It celebrates the strong and resilent sisters in our family.
Only 100 bottles were produced. The magnums were filled by hand and then disgorged and labeled by hand.
For every bottle sold this holiday season, $75 will be donated by Simon and Kathleen Inman in honor of their niece, Florence Inman, to the Renal Unit at the Leeds General Infirmary and the Sick Children's trust.
