This dazzling Brut Rosé offers vibrant aromas of orange marmalade and biscuits, with hints of wild strawberry and ripe cherry. An electric undercurrent of racy acidity adds poise and dimension to this plush, richly textured sparkler, while bright fruit flavors and hints of baking spice, lemon zest and freshly-baked brioche dance across the palate.
Goldeneye Winery was founded in 1996, years before the Pinot Noir boom that has reshaped the landscape of California winemaking. But the genesis for Goldeneye goes back even further. In 1990, after fifteen years of making world-class Bordeaux-varietal wines, Dan and Margaret Duckhorn embraced their growing love of Pinot Noir. Their vision for Goldeneye was simple, though not easy. They wanted to found a winery that could make a terroir-inspired expression of California Pinot Noir of equal stature to the acclaimed Merlots they had pioneered at Duckhorn Vineyards in Napa Valley. For Pinot Noir, the Duckhorns believed that true greatness would be found on the cool-climate edges of modern California viticulture and found what they were looking for in the Anderson Valley.
