Ultramarine Blanc de Blancs

Notes of lemon curd, brioche and oyster shell introduce a bright, texturally expansive wine with a creamy mousse, built around a core of crisp acidity. The Charles Heintz Vineyard’s distinctive signature – also found in still Chardonnays from this site – shines forth loud and clear. It’s California origins are reflected by volume but not by sucrosity: the finish is crisp and dry.
