2019 Mamacita! Pétillant-Naturel
The 2019 vintage of everyone's favorite Mama is composed of 57% Malvasia Bianca from Herb Quady's Mae's Vineyard and 43% Early Muscat from Layne Vineyard. Our two most important growers in Applegate Valley really hit the mark with their fruit in 2019, and the resulting wine shows exactly why we prize these vineyards so highly. All the classic character is on full display – highly aromatic key lime and lemon feature on the nose, with background floral notes of jasmine and verbena. The palate is bright, racy, and full of vibrant citrus and super-fine mousse. There's even a slightly exotic touch of cardamom and saffron on the surprisingly long finish.
