Wine Review: This glistening white gold colored sparkler opens with large and medium random bubbles. The bouquet features a green grape and bread dough bouquet with hints of marzipan and green apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, bright, and fresh. The flavor profile is a bread dough and chamomile tea blend with notes of ginger and marzipan. I also detected hints of lemon zest and stony minerality. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are nicely extended. I would pair this Virginia sparkler with scallop appetizers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Blanc de Noir, meaning "white from black", is a beautiful representation of how this grape can be transformed to create a world class sparkling wine. Flavors of apple, pear, and candied lemon peel dominate the nose. Nicely balanced with nutty and complex bread dough aromas.
