MAWBY ‘TALIS’ Sparkling Brut Leelanau Peninsula
Winemaker Notes: Estate grown, toasty brioche aromas, distinguished, french kiss
Talis is our most complex, elegant traditional method sparkling wine. This blend is produced entirely from our estate Talis vineyard. Here pinot noir, chardonnay, vignoles and pinot gris grapes are hand-harvested and wholecluster pressed. Only the initial, gently pressed fractions of the juice are used for this cuvee [the harder-pressed juice, which contains more phenols, tannins and acids, is reserved for other wines]. The juice is blended with our reserve wine solera [comprised of wine from each vintage since 1992 from the Talismøn vineyard] and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. After this initial fermentation, the wine is bottle fermented and aged en tirage before disgorging. Finished with a Brut dosage (0.8% residual sugar) the wine has baked pear fruit aromas, with a toasty accent and a fine lingering finish.
Minimum 36 months en tirage
Formally known as Talismon
Wine Enthusiast - List of 12 of our Top-Rated American Sparkling Wines - "Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Vignoles that employs 34% solera reserve to yield aromas of warm dough, salted peanut and crusty bread. This robust sparkling has tickling, fine bubbles, well-placed acidity and a firm structure. The palate is rich and ripe in flavors of pear and apple, backed by fresh ciabatta and a squeeze of lemon. The finish brings a toastier flavor to the mix that lingers long."
