This is a sparkling wine made from 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. It utilized the Charmat method (trapping the bubbles in steel tanks) to make a lovely yet inexpensive sparkling wine. Salmon pink in color with a steady stream of small bubbles. The nose is nice with strawberries, rhubarb and slight cherries. Full bodied with good acidity. On the palate, this has tangy red fruit including cherries and strawberries. Some depth. Long finish. At this price, a terrific value. A nice wine for celebrations or for just enjoying. Nice on its own, this is very food friendly and would go great with fried foods. Drink over the next couple of years. Made from organic grapes.
