Wine Review: This pale straw sparkler from Vouvray with tiny bubbles opens with a fragrant green apple and yeasty bread dough bouquet with hints of peppermint. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, nicely balanced, effervescent and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon and apple blend with notes of walnut, minerality and white pepper. The finish is quite dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Chenin Blanc sparkler with a pork roast or shrimp scampi. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This graceful yet abundant bubbly entices with aromas of lime and toast that leads to a delicate, yet fresh palate with a hint of spice and a long, lingering finish.
