The 2012 vintage was a classic for the production of sparkling wines. Cool days and cold nights through the month of September helped to maintain a bracing acidity in the fruit while allowing for a longer hang time and terrific evolution in the fruit profile without the usual spike in sugar production.
Each vineyard block was hand harvested, pressed, and fermented separately. After several blending trials and tastings, the final composition of the base wine was assembled and put to bottle for secondary fermentation. As with any sparkling wine produced at Blasted Church Vineyards, the 2012 OMFG was made in the traditional method where the secondary fermentation takes place in bottle prior to several years on lees. In the case of our OMFG it was six years on lees, before being hand riddled and disgorged.
