Wine Type Sparkling
Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren

Our classic brut sparkling, made from Chardonnay, is fresh and vibrant, with aromas of elderflower balanced by complex notes of pear and citrus. Bright acidity leads to an elegant, dry finish.

Tasting Notes

A beautiful yellow color with specks of gold and green leads to delicate aromas of white flower and ripe summer fruits, with a hint of Meyer lemon. Flavors of pear and apple are graced with notes of honey and vanilla alongside a pleasant yeasty aroma of freshly baked bread. Mouthwatering acidity and high tones of minerality lead to a lingering, refreshing and quite elegant finish.

Winemaking Notes

Chateau St. Jean Gewurztraminer is made in an off-dry style. After a brief soaking on the skins, the juice was fermented at very low temperatures in small batches for just over one month in temperature-controlled stainless steel vessels.

This retains natural acidity and fragrant varietal character. We stop the fermentation a little early so that the wine offers balance between beautiful aromatics and body.
