A complex and elegantly structured sparkling wine with a nose of toasted almond, Meyer lemon peel, yeasty brioche and green apple. On the palate, a profound richness is tampered by mouthwatering acidity that supports unctuous flavors of white peach and tangerine along with lingering caramel-toffee notes on the uncompromisingly dry finish.
Founded in 1988 after assistant winemaker, James Hall, and national sales manager, Donald Patz began a close friendship while working together at Flora Springs Winery and Vineyards. They discovered a mutual enthusiasm for a rich and compelling style of wine made by applying traditional winemaking techniques to fruit from elite, small vineyards. Inspired to combine their winemaking and sales talents, James and Donald joined with partners Anne Moses and Heather Patz, to establish Patz & Hall.
Patz & Hall has become one of California's most highly regarded wineries with a celebrated portfolio of single-vineyard wines. To achieve their goal of making exceptional limited-production wines the four founders each focused their specialized knowledge and expertise on different areas on the winery's operations. This approach, along with a commitment to developing close personal relationship with many of California's finest growers (Larry Hyde, Lee Hudson and the Martinelli and Pisoni families) became the cornerstones of the winery's success.
