Current Vintage 2003 Blanc de Blancs
Elk Run made its first sparkling wine in 1991 and has been producing award-winning, critically acclaimed “méthode champenoise” wines ever since. Elk Run produces a Blanc de Blancs from our estate Chardonnay. Our sparkling wines are aged a minimum of four years in the bottle before being disgorged. This creates a wine with nice fruit, tart acidity and tiny bubbles that dance on the tongue, all wines are made in a brut style. For those who wish a little more sweetness we recommend a Kat Royal. Add a touch of Sweet Katherine wine to sweeten to taste. A great answer at a party to meet anyone’s palate.

This after dinner wine is a made from Cabernet Sauvignon finished sweet. It is full of fruit and complexity and goes well with chocolate desserts as well as strong cheeses. This is a very versatile wine. Made from such a dynamic grape it can be drunk in many ways: Serve it cold as a dessert wine or warm as a mulled wine. To make mulled wine, we add a small piece of cinnamon stick and orange peel and warm. It can also be made into Sangria by combining two parts Sweet Katherine with two parts tonic water and one part orange juice or used as a Kat Royal; one glass of Elk Run Champagne; a drop or two of Sweet Katherine.
