TASTING NOTES

A luscious, bottle-fermented sparkling wine that showcases three of our outstanding Foothills white grapes: Marsanne, Fiano and Muscat Blanc.  Bright aromas of citrus and apples mix with yeasty and nutty notes from a traditional bottle fermentation, and the delicate, long lasting bubbles bring zest to this amazing wine.  An unforgettable wine!
