Wine Review: This platinum gold colored sparkling wine from the Finger Lakes opens with streams of lots of various size bubbles. The bouquet is a soapy lemon with hints of wet stone, ginger, and green apple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with very bright tingly acidity that is delicate and refreshing. The flavor profile is a lemon and stony mineral blend with notes of green tea and white pepper. We also detected hints of peach pit and saline. The finish is dry and very refreshing. The Panel would serve this sparkler chilled at the beach. With food we would pair it with pan-seared scallops or with gougères. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Delicate aromas of freshly baked bread, Asian pear, fresh strawberries, baked red apple, white flowers, and fresh strawberries. Leading with a fine mousse, the mouthfeel is tense and profound with creamy lees, strawberry, and red cherry. A touch of tannin balances the acidity on the sophisticated finish. Pair with oysters, fried foods, sushi, or popcorn.
