NV Domaine St. Vincent Brut

NV Domaine St. Vincent Brut

A tight budget should never dissuade anyone from enjoying a glass of sparkling wine. And while all of Gruet’s sparkling wines offer excellent value, Gruet’s winemaker describes the St. Vincent N.V. Brut as a “budget friendly wine that encompasses all the quality and flavor that you would expect from a Gruet sparkling wine. This wine is easy to drink and very food-friendly, two pre-requisites that most wine lovers appreciate!” Like all of Gruet’s wines, the St. Vincent is made according to the Champagne method with the second fermentation occurring inside the bottle. In the glass, lively bubbles, a fine mousse and bright fruit notes of green apple and pear make for pleasant sipping before or during lunch or dinner.

NV Gruet Brut

NV Gruet Brut

Because bone-dry sparkling wine has little mass appeal, a dosage of sweet liqueur is added when the bottles are disgorged and corked. Brut is the driest level of sweetness (confusingly, Sec (“dry”) is sweeter than Brut). A blend of 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, this sparkling wine is crisp and full-bodied and certain to spice up any meal – indoors or out. With a magnum, everybody at your springtime or early summer picnic will be sure to enjoy a glass!

NV Gruet Blanc de Noirs

NV Gruet Blanc de Noirs

NV Bodkin

NV Bodkin "Cuvee Agincourt" Blanc de Blanc Brut

Bodkin Wines bills itself as America’s first producer of sparkling Sauvignon Blanc. Now, we at Hotei  are delighted to offer this fun wine. If you love the racy flavors and aromas of Sauvignon Blanc and the acidity, low alcohol and bubbles in sparkling wine, you may wonder why this combination has eluded you for so long. When Bodkin’s Chris Christensen first encountered bubbly Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand, he thought it nearly rivaled peanut butter and jelly as one of the great taste combinations; he knew that if he could not find it in the U.S., he would make it himself. Sourcing grapes from the high elevation, Sandy Bend Vineyard in Lake County, Christensen believes the combination of intense sunshine and cool nights allow Sauvignon Blanc to develop higher levels of phenolic ripeness for flavor, aroma and mouthfeel. The bubbles in “Cuvee Agincourt” (named for the decisive battle in the medieval 100 Years War) are made via second fermentation inside the bottle, as in Champagne. Bottle aging on the lees rounds out the texture and gives complexity to this lively wine. A party wine if there ever was one; bring it to your holiday get-togethers as well as spring and summer picnics.

NV Piper Sonoma Brut Rose Sonoma County

NV Piper Sonoma Brut Rose Sonoma County

A product of the cool Russian River Valley, Piper Sonoma’s Brut Rosé is crisp and fragrant, a delight to the eyes, nose and palate. While the blend of 54% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir, and 7% Pinot Meunier differs little from the Brut in its ratio of white to red grapes, the cuvée includes a dash of Pinot Noir still wine, and the gorgeous pink color and tantalizing floral notes and red berry aromas are the result. A sparkling wine that will turn any gathering into an occasion, the Brut Rosé will pair well with sashimi, Thai duck curry, or most anything laid out to nibble on before a meal.

NV Piper Sonoma Brut Sonoma County

NV Piper Sonoma Brut Sonoma County

Piper Sonoma Brut is made in the the traditional manner of the Champagne region in France. The grapes, a classic blend of 60% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, are hand-harvested early in the season in order to ensure high acidity and low potential alcohol. Lots from vineyards in Sonoma, Carneros and Dry Creek Valley are fermented separately in stainless steel. In early winter, the wines are tasted and painstakingly blended in order to create a cuvée that maintains consistency with earlier vintages. The final blend is bottled with bit of yeast and sweetness to kick off the second fermentation inside each bottle. After 18 months of aging on the lees and further blending with 20 – 25% reserve wines (hence, the non-vintage dating), this delightful sparkling wine is ready to drink. Combining the sophistication and elegance of fine Champagne with the sunshine and bright fruit of California, Piper Sonoma offers value that says “no special occasion necessary!”

2012 Gruet Blanc de Blancs

2012 Gruet Blanc de Blancs

In 2012, the Chardonnay in Gruet’s high elevation vineyard was excellent, an ideal year to produce a special, vintage-dated cuvée based on this variety alone. Three years of aging produced a wine that captures the essence of classic Champagne: delicate creaminess accented with subtle notes of green apples and brioche. This wine is well suited for cheese or for seafood dishes like lobster. The crisp acidity provides a satisfying compliment to fried dishes such as crab cakes, tempura or fried calamari.

NV J Vineyards & Winery Brut Rose

NV J Vineyards & Winery Brut Rose

Even unopened, the sleek, clear glass bottle filled with luminous cool pink wine is a conversation piece – just the thing to get a party started. But in the glass is where this fruit-driven and full-flavored sparkling wine really shines. A blend of 64% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay and 2% Pinot Meunier, this Rosé has substantial body and concentrated red fruit flavors but plenty of acidity and a clean finish. Three years aging on the lees has given the wine a toasty, fresh-baked bread character that recalls Champagne.
