Wine Review: This light straw colored Sparkler consistently performs very well with our panel. It opens with a mild bread dough bouquet with hints of grapefruit and lemon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, a touch acidic and slightly effervescent. The flavor profile is a slightly tart green apple with hints of white pepper, mild grapefruit, and some nicely integrated minerality. The finish is very dry and its flavors linger for a while. The panel suggested serving this very nice sparkler with appetizers like bacon wrapped scallops or caviar. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Blanc de Blancs offers bright aromas of fresh green apple and juicy pineapple, complemented by yeasty sweet bread dough. The aromas lead into an expressive and generous taste of white stone fruit, apple, pear and tart grapefruit. An undertone of salty minerality and a complex creamy palate are supported to the end with a mouthwatering acidity. - Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
