Kluge Estate SP

Kluge Estate SP Wine Details
Price: $38.00 per bottle

Description: The first sparkling white wine from Kluge Estate, made with Chardonnay grapes in the traditional méthode Champenoise style, is a classical French blanc de blanc. Loaded with tiny, effervescent bubbles, SP is an energetic brut. In addition to being a favorite cocktail and celebratory drink, our New World sparkling wine pairs very well with Asian-inspired food (the fresh sweetness of the fruit balances with the spiciness of the meal). It is also excellent with chocolate and sweets .

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
