Wine Review: This pale yellow sparkler from the North Fork on Long Island, made our panels recommendation list after our recent blind tasting in November. It opens with a light kiwi and grape like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine has good balance, is easy to drink, and displays apple and citrus like flavors. The finish is dry and brief. The panel did notice that the bubbles faded quickly. The panel felt this wine would be a Very Good brunch wine and pair nicely with chocolate, raspberries, and strawberries. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A light bright gold color, with a lively cordon of lather dancing on top of the wine, its fine bubbles rise up steadily to the surface. The wine develops fruity aromas of fresh apple and citrus, along with a refined dough aroma in the background. A pleasant tickling effervescence gently stimulates your senses. Fresh as a ripe apple, tasty as a red cherry, the wine finishes round and soft, with delicate complexity and finesse. Although the wine was young at the time of release, it shows a great potential for aging.
