2020 Mamacita! Pétillant-Naturel
The 2020 vintage of everyone's favorite Mama is composed of 74% Malvasia Bianca from Herb Quady's Mae's Vineyard and 19% Early Muscat and 7% Vermentino from Layne Vineyard. Our two most important growers in Applegate Valley really hit the mark with their fruit in 2020, 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.
