Wine Review: This pale yellow colored sparkler opens with a doughy green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused green pear with tart grapefruit and white pepper notes. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. The panel suggested pairing this sparkler with swordfish skewers. 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. Great pairing with any type of seafood, from raw oysters, cracked crab, steamed mussels, and lobster. Also excellent with cream based risotto.
