TASTING NOTES

A luscious, hand-picked, bottle-fermented sparkling wine that showcases three of our outstanding Foothills white grapes: Marsanne Viognier, & Vermentino. A wine with impeccable balance, crisp acidity, & clean minerality, this is an unforgettable, must-have wine! On the nose, you are greeted with bright aromas of tangerine, white nectarine, lychee & Asian pear, with hints of freshly baked brioche & crystalized ginger. The palate bursts with vibrant flavors of Granny Smith apple, Meyer lemon curd, & candied grapefruit that cling to the palate. Notes of lemon cucumber & marzipan are complimented by super clean minerality & long-lasting, elegant bubbles. This rich and refreshing sparkler is perfect for any meal or occasion! With its vibrant, fruitful, & crisp yet elegant nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure, & refined finish for years to come but is absolutely delicious now! Drink now to 2028.
