Texture 2019 Blanc de Noirs 

In the last four decades, it has become evident that some of the finest sparkling wine vineyards outside of France are quietly thriving in Anderson Valley. Simply ask the French. Champagne house Louis Roederer purchased 580 acres in this secluded region in 1982 after spending years in search of a New World vineyard with the potential to match its own. Erich Bradley has similarly sought out a site worthy of growing Anderson Valley sparkling wine with the balance and tension that define Texture. He found it in the valley’s northwestern deep end.” 

Crafted in the classic Méthode Traditionnelle style, our inaugural Blanc de Noirs is intensely fruit driven and highlighted by expressive minerality and a bone-dry backbone. After disgorgement, no dosage is added so that the wine retains its crisp and refreshing brut character. Despite the exceptional quality of its sparkling wine offerings, Anderson Valley’s small geographical size and remote location dictates that only a handful of wineries make the effort. For those audacious enough to pursue the endeavor, the reward is a bottling that rivals the sublime Champagnes that have become the symbol of celebration for generations.
