Wine Review: This Sparkler from Gloria Ferrer was the clear winner in our upper end blind tasting recently. It is pale yellow colored and opens with a bread dough and light lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a very tasty almond and green apple blend with just a hint of honey. The finish is dry, elegant, and graceful. The panel suggested pairing it with Coquille St. Jacques or lightly breaded haddock with a lemon butter drizzle. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A complex, effusive nose offers ripe apple and rich Asian pear aromas interlaced with bright berry notes, hints of marzipan and biscuity, toasty yeast tones. On the palate, this wine is creamy, plush and remarkably fresh, with layers of lemon curd, baked apple, vanilla and pear flavors intermingling in a very elegant, vibrant and enduring finish.
