This is Bodega Cruzat's re-branded successor to the Cruzat Clasico Extra Brut (still available on our site but with limited remaining stocks) and, like its earlier vintage predecessor, it is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. Grown high in the Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza the grapes are harvested in February, and then fermented for 12 months using traditional in-bottle fermentation. Cruzat's attention to detail produces a crisp sparkling wine with balanced acidity and an admirable perlage. On the nose there are notes of citrus, flowers, and subtle aromas of tropical fruits. It's a wine that is perfect to be enjoyed on its own or as an aperitif, but pairs very well with seafood, fish and light pasta dishes.
