Ovum, Rare Form 'Day Moon'
Grape Varietal: 100% Riesling
Dosage: 0-2 grams/liter (Brut Nature)
Location: Dundee Hills, Oregon
- This exceptional sparkling wine is an extremely limited production with only a handful of cases made available to this entire region.
- This golden-hued American bubbly is made in the traditional method and layered with complex aromas of citrus, nectarine, beeswax, and butter
- The tight delicate bubbles bring out lemon, pineapple and dried floral notes on the tongue with a finish that offers up hints of nuts and ginger. A delightfully complex sparkler to discover.
Ksenija House is a female winemaker who co-founded Ovum in 2011. All her wines are certified organic and reflect a commitment to letting the vintage, the land, and the grapes shine. The Riesling for these bottles comes from volcanic soil atop Dundee Hills, OR. The soil, itself, imparts strong minerality and salinity. Day Moon’s initial fermentation is done in amphora, and then ages the base wine in barrel for 1-2 years. After the second fermentation, it’s aged for two more years in bottle.
