Description

The 2013 Fitz Brut is a Pinot Noir dominant blend at 53% with the remaining 47% as Chardonnay. We barrel fermented 100% of the wine in neutral oak to build texture and body, but without adding any oak characteristics. We aged it a minimum of 27 months on lees.  It’s a bright, round, yet crisp wine with precision and intensity.

Critical Acclaim:

The Fitzpatrick family's (ex-CedarCreek) are back in the game with anew sparkling wine project run out of the Greata Ranch estate just north of Summerland. In fact, the 2013, is the 2nd vintage to be released from what is looking like an impressive traditional method sparkling wine program, under the watchful eye of talented Kiwi winemaker Sarah Bain, previously of Burn Cottage and Quartz Reef. This is a 53/47 pinot noir/chardonnay cuvee that spent 27 months in the bottle on its lees. Ripe green apple, lemon, light white cherry anchors the wine amid ample minerality and a brisk, linear, taut fizz albeit a slightly fleshier frame than the inaugural (and very shearing) 2012. It is drinking beautifully now, but will continue to hold for five + years. Impressive start. Respect.

Score: 91 points -- Anthony Gismondi, Nov 2016
