Cruse Wine Co. Cruse Tradition Sparkling NV
Modern, traditional method sparkling wine from California.
Grape: Pinot Noir + Chardonnay
Region: California, USA
The Cruse Tradition is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from four extraordinary vineyards: Rorick Vineyard high in the Sierra Foothills, Keefer Ranch in Sebastopol, Alder Springs Vineyard in cool Mendocino County, and Charles Heintz Vineyard in the coastal town of Occidental. It is a brut zero sparkler which means it is classified amongst the driest category of sparkling wines, clocking in under 3 grams of residual sugar per liter. The resultant wine is sunny bubbly with a toasty, almond butter nose, and a wild palate of beeswax, white flowers, ripe apples, and a squeeze of lemon; a snapshot of sparkling California.
Michael Cruse was born and raised in Northern California and prides himself on producing wines that are unabashedly Californian and inherently delicious. Michael came to the wine business through his love of science. His moment of enlightenment was attending a lecture at Cal Berkeley by none other than Terry Leighton of Kalin Cellars! Michael was able to envision a path where his deep knowledge and appreciation for science could take him into the world of wine.
