Loring Wine Company
Known lovingly as ‘Loring Spray’ (lol), I begged, pleaded, and cajoled Brian into offering these for BerserkerDay, as we had the chance to sample them at Hitching Post II with Brian, Cargasacchi, Jen, and my friends. I LOVED these, honestly - more than anything I’ve ever had from Brian, and this is his first go at it! WTF! I’ve already reserved my Loring Spray, and it will go fast, so you better get on it.
"This is an early, “sneak preview” of our first ever sparkling wines The wines have been sitting en tirage for 18 months and are starting to develop the flavors we’re looking for. They’re very fresh right now, and actually damn tasty! We’ll probably let the wines sit another year or so before we disgorge some portion to release for “real”. We’ll keep some bottles en tirage for much longer - think Loring Œnothèque - just for fun. What should be of interest is that these wines represent a completely new way of looking at how to make sparkling wine in California. While grapes in Champagne may be truely ripe at 19 brix (IMHO due mostly to latitude) I don’t think we can get nearly the same level of ripeness at those brix levels in California - even in very cold regions. So we decided to pick the fruit “California ripe”, like we do all our fruit. In fact, the base wine we use is the same that goes into our regular Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs - just without seeing any oak. We de-alc the wines down to 11% alcohol before starting the secondary fermentation. So far, we’ve beeen thrilled with the results! "
