2016 Bubbles Brut
2016 Bubbles Brut

The 2016 Luna Bubbles Brut is made from 100% Carneros fruit. This region is known for its fertile soils and cool temperatures as it continually receives bay breezes throughout the growing season. This wine is predominantly Pinot Noir, a varietal suited for this cooler appellation. The 2016 vintage was an abundant one, producing high quality grapes from an ideally moderate growing season.

Appellation

Carneros

Blend

62% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Grigio

Grapes were picked early in the season to retain natural acidity and freshness. The must from the grapes was then fermented for two weeks at cold temperatures to retain maximum natural aromatics. After primary fermentation, the wine is bottled and completes secondary fermentation in the bottle which creates the bubbles. It is then given a dosage, a sweet liquor designed to round out desired flavors and mouthfeel. After aging for 3 years in the bottle, the wine is finally ready for your enjoyment.

Vinification

Underwent classic, time-honored tradition of Méthode Champenoise with the second fermentation occurring in the bottle

Traditionally, Canto has been a "Super Tuscan" blend at Luna Vineyards. In 2016, we combined reserve selection Sangiovese from the Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville with Merlot from Howell Mountain, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Atlas Peak.

All of our fruit was handpicked and sorted before going into the crusher, which gently crushes the berries. They are then sorted by hand a second time, ensuring that only the best grapes make it into the wine. We allowed a very warm fermentation, to extract the most possible flavor, texture, and color from the grapes.

The 2016 Canto has a dark, inky hue complemented by velvety, cocoa infused tannins. The tannin structure will allow this wine to age gracefully to 2025 and beyond.

Tasting Notes

Dark berries, anise, clove, vanilla and cedar on the nose; blackberry, mocha, nutmeg, toffee, and wild blueberries on the palate

In classic varietal style, Luna's 2016 Petite Sirah is busting at the seams with tannins and wild berry flavors. Despite the name, the grape clusters of Petite Sirah are the largest we see during harvest. The hue of the grape skins is so dark that they are nearly jet black.
