Sur La Mer is a way to preserve a farming heritage with a blend of three varieties: Gravensteins, Philo Golds, and Rhode Island Greenings for some acidity. The Drew family has gone old school in their approach, with a native yeast primary fermentation and dosage with a champagne yeast (no forced carbonation here) before bottling, as a traditional sparkling wine is made. The bubbles are finer this way. Notes of green apple, citrus, bread yeast, and salinity, as well as seaweed due to their coastal proximity, are evident here. Perfect with creamy and salty cheeses or roast chicken.
