Wine Review: This pale yellow wine with refined small bubbles opens with a light lemony like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied sparkling wine is lively, with prominent acidity, with lemony like flavors and a touch of bread dough and green apples. The finish is dry and lingers nicely. The panel would pair this sparkler with broiled scallops or baked brie cheese. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A complex interplay of subtly nuanced berry and cherry aromas marries with mature yeast characters and a trace of graphite in the nose of this well-developed yet remarkably fresh sparkling wine. The wine holds in exquisite balance full, round, abundant flavors of citrus, ripe apple, spice and toast with vibrant acidity that refreshes the palate throughout an extremely long finish.
