2015 “BRILLANTE” SPARKLING WINE

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

100% Airport Ranch, Yakima Valley, WA

VARIETAL BLEND:
100% Chardonnay

FERMENTATION:
100% Stainless Steel

Harvested: September 2015
Bottled: October 2016
Cases Produced: 180
Alcohol: 11.5%
pH: 3.33
TA: 8.5 g/L
Residual Sugar: 1.75%

WINEMAKER NOTES

“Brillante”, which translates to “Brilliant” in Spanish, is Castillo de Feliciana’s signature sparkling wine. Made from 100% Chardonnay and harvested during the late summer season, “Brillante” is nuanced with aromas of green apple, biscuits, honey, bread dough, and subtleties of vanilla. A refreshing pallet of soft sweetness is balanced with bright acidity, creating a well-balanced flavor profile. 

This sparkling wine was produced using the time honored Méthode Tradionnelle. A second fermentation inside the bottle produces the fine effervescence and subtle yeast nuances. Upon completion of this second fermentation, the bottles are “riddled” to collect the yeast, “disgorged” to remove the solids, and finally corked for preservation.

Our 2014 “Miercoles” Red Blend continues the tradition in crafting a unique “Wednesday” wine composed of a variety of grape varietals. On first pour, tart raspberry, plum, and orange marmalade fill the bouquet. As the wine further aerates, the aroma evolves into soft smoke, olive brine, and black pepper. This fine dinner wine will accompany a variety of foods, with its light body, mild acidity, and dusty tannins. Why wait for Wednesday, when you can have this wine everyday?

WINEMAKER NOTES

The 2014 vintage in the Columbia Valley was plentiful in heat, and we were rewarded with optimal ripeness of Malbec. This thick, dark skinned varietal (made famous in wine growing regions of Argentina and Chile) shines in our blend, with an added 10% Cabernet Sauvignon for backbone and structure. Juicy Marionberry preserves and plum blend seamlessly with nuances of mocha, tobacco and toasted vanilla. A supple and medium body carries plush tannins that balance the bold backbone of ripe fruits. We advise to keep your glass close, as a finish of ripe blackberry and mild acidity beckons the palate for another sip.
