Wine Review: This straw-colored sparkling wine opens with lots of tiny streaming bubbles. The bouquet features bread dough and chamomile tea along with hints of jasmine. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with bright refreshing acidity. The flavor profile is light lemon and stony mineral blend with notes of almond and chewy plain bagel. We also detected hints of ginger and soft lime in the mix. The finish is rather dry and subtle. The Panel would pair this sparkler with sushi, oysters, or a crab cocktail. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This very focused and elegant wine displays lovely notes of key lime, honeycomb, and lemon curd. This round wine displays a palate with hints of lime blossom, baked pear, and lemon meringue, resulting in a creamy texture and a long finish. Our Brut Cuvée is our most versatile wine for food pairing. Try it with oysters or with roast chicken.
