Pondview Estate Winery: Lot 74 Sparkling Brut

2014 Lot 74 Sparkling Brut


Pondview’s Director of Sales, Marcel Morgenstern, wouldn’t tell us anything about this wine until we had tasted it. Finding unusually floral, Marcel laughed and told the story. He said he had discovered a box of wines made in the 70s in a winery that had shut down. Among them, he discovered a Vidal table wine, and began to think about how unusual it is that so few wines are made with this lovely hybrid grape. He thought it would be an interesting experiment to make a sparkler with it and convinced his Pondview colleagues. The Lot 74 Sparkling Brut – made from 100% Vidal grapes in the Charmat method – is the result. 

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: The wine pours with heady effervescence and aromas of white peaches and cherry blossoms. It’s lightly tart and very pretty, with a surprisingly sharp mousse. This would be a beautiful wine to celebrate the beginning of the weekend or a get-together with friends.

Suggested Food Pairing: Marcel recommended pairing this wine with a party! But he also said it would go well with canapés served at that party.

Cellaring: Drink now.
