Wine Review: This pale straw colored sparkler opens with a wet slate bouquet with hints of pear and hazelnut coffee. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, clean, but displays a distracting amount of bubbles. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with hints of hazelnut. The finish is dry and dissipates quickly. The panel suggested pairing this sparkler with escargot. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Ripe stone fruit medley and citrus intermingle with toast, butter and yeasty aromas on the nose of this well-developed yet vibrantly fresh sparkling wine. Creamy textures with hints of butterscotch and almonds support delicious flavors of pears, apples and lemons. The elegantly structured and long creamy finish is simply irresistible.
