TASTING NOTES

A luscious, hand-picked, bottle-fermented sparkling wine that showcases two of our outstanding Foothills white grapes: Marsanne and Viognier. A wine with impeccable balance, crisp acidity, and rich flavors, this is an unforgettable, must-have wine! On the nose, you are greeted with bright aromas of green apple, lemongrass, lychee & marzipan with hints of hazelnut and walnut. The palate bursts with flavors of ripe peach, Asian pear, honey, and ginger that are complimented by a crisp, clean minerality and long-lasting, elegant bubbles. This rich and refreshing sparkler is perfect for any meal or occasion! With its vibrant, fruitful, and crisp yet elegant nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure, and refined finish for years to come but is absolutely delicious now! Drink now to 2024.
