Wine Review: This pale pink colored Sparkling Wine from the Finger Lakes opens small to medium streaming bubbles. The bouquet displays a shy watermelon, faint bread dough and red cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied with gentle acidity. It is a tad frothy with a nice rounded and creamy mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a mild red raspberry, pear, and brioche blend with notes to tangerine and gentle stone minerality. The finish is semi-dry, and its flavors and acidity linger nicely after the wine is gone. This Sparkler is a very affordable crowd pleaser for your upcoming holiday parties. With food, we would pair it with chilled shrimp cocktail or oysters on the half shell. Enjoy – Ken & Joe

Winemaker Notes: Our Célèbre Rosé is a 55% Pinot Noir, 34% Chardonnay, and 11% Pinot Meunier blend from our estate vineyards on Keuka Lake. It is light salmon in color, the wine leads with ripe strawberry, passion fruit, and pineapple. Méthode Champenoise adds aromas of bread and toast. The taste is crisp and clean. The high acidity balances the sweetness perfectly, seemingly light in body. The flavors are persistent, finishing with honeycrisp apple. Pair with spicy Asian cuisine (especially spicy), sushi, or grilled salmon.
