Our Bluebird Cuvée Brut Sparkling is a vibrant example of a wine made in the traditional method. It is kept in tirage for a relatively short amount of time, only 16 months, the shorter tirage time is essential for the style of sparkling we are aiming to produce. We are looking to create a sparkling wine with bright acidity and citrus zest characters along with other intense floral and tropical fruit characteristics. These are captured early in the winemaking process, and with the addition of the shorter tirage time, we are able to gently build the mouth feel by the secondary fermentation that occurs in the bottle. We balance the bright acidity of sparkling with a mid brut level dosage of 8g/ L.
The Bluebird Cuvée Brut Sparkling is designated as a Brut level of sweetness. Expressing aromatics of lychee and baguette. There are notes of spiced apple cider on the nose and on the palate, and the finish is crisp pear with bright acidity and fine bubbles.
