Wine Review: In the glass this easy drinking sparkler is a medium straw colored with lots of small bubbles. Its bouquet includes lightly toasted brioche, dried apricots, green apple, and a hint of ginger. On the palate, it is slightly off-dry, clean, balanced, and fresh, with medium body and moderate acidity. There are flavors of tart green apple, light minerality, ginger ale and sourdough bread. The finish is refreshing and moderate in length. This versatile sparkling wine can be enjoyed on its own or elevate a grocery store rotisserie chicken. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Playful aromas of freshly baked apple pie, a squeeze of citrus, French toast and roasted nuts spring forward from the glass. At first sip the creamy palate is greeted with flavors of ripe pear and toasted brioche paired with refreshing acidity. The fine bubbles dance on your tongue, leading to a clean and lively finish.
