Wine Review: This pale yellow colored sparkler opens with a bread dough bouquet with hints of almond and apple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and effervescent. The flavor profile is an apple with hints of white pepper and lemon. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. The panel suggested pairing this very nice sparkler with grilled trout or warm brie with a blueberry spread on French bread slices. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: An extremely fine, effusive mousse carries mouthwatering aromas of crisp, ripe apple, Asian pear, Meyer lemon and brioche emanating from this elegant wine. On the palate, the wine is almost lush, full and creamy yet clean and refreshing, with beautifully integrated flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue, vanilla and lovely mineral notes on a fresh, well balanced and enduring finish. An exquisite accompaniment to a wide variety of appetizers from sashimi, grilled prawns, caviar, and also matches splendidly with a host of cheeses, like triple cream Brie.
