The Sterling Vineyards 2016 Blanc de Blancs is comprised of 100 percent Napa Valley Chardonnay. The fruit comes from a single vineyard located in Yountville which produces beautifully concentrated Chardonnay with excellent varietal character.


2016 was another great vintage throughout California, on par with the previous wonderful 2015 vintage. Warm spring temperatures and even weather throughout the growing season led to an earlier than normal harvest for most of the Napa Valley and other regions throughout the state. California’s continued drought led to lower yields in the vineyards but produced fruit of exceptional quality, concentrated fruit f lavors and color.


Winemaker Harry Hansen takes great care in crafting a b eautiful expression of Chardonnay for the base wine of this Blanc de Blancs. The Chardonnay f ruit was harvested in the cool morning hours and sent directly to press at the winery. Only stainless steel is used during fermentation to preserve f reshness. First and second pressings are blended to add depth, layers of f lavor and complexity. The sparkling is made using the Charmat Method, or Cuveé Close, g iving the f inal wine a delicate but persistent effervescence.
