Sparkling Wine – Blanc de Noir

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 two different sparklers: this is a Blanc de Noir made from our estate-grown Pinot Noir. These 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 these wines are made in a brut style. For those who wish a little more sweetness, we recommend making a “Kat Royal.” Add a touch of our Sweet Katherine wine to the sparkling wine and sweeten to taste.
