Gamla Brut sparkling wine shows off bright yet delicate notes of orange blossoms and green apples, layered with hints of tropical fruits, wild strawberries and fresh flowers. The flavor is crisp and clean, leaving onewith the desire for another sip. We love popping open Gamla Brut with something to nibble on before a meal. It’salso great with fish in general and sushi inparticular. We recommend drinking Gamla Brut within a couple of years.
Most of Gamla Brut comes from the 2006 vintage. A relatively warm, dry winter preceded the 2006 season. Very low rainfall caused great worry until a cold wet April delivered enough rain to bring the seasonal total to 90% of normal. The relative cool continued to the end of July, delaying the start of harvest by about ten days. Near perfect conditions then prevailed until almost the end of the vintage when, on the 15th, the first of five October rains hit. The precipitation (five times the October norm!) delayed to November the final 8% of harvest.
