Wine Review: This pale gold colored sparkler from Gloria Ferrar opens with a light Granny Smith apple bouquet with hints of smoke and licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and had bigger bubbles than most. It completely filled your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of candied lemon, lime and a touch of anise. The finish is dry and refreshing and it was much more prolonged when compared to many of the others we covered. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The wine opens with green apple, citrus and honey on the nose. This continues into the mouth adding black cherry and brioche with Asian pear. The mouse is fine-textured and creamy. Light mineral character and Meyer lemon continue into a long, crisp finish. This wine pairs beautifully with a wide variety of appetizers ranging from toasted almonds and marinated olives to fried calamari or seared scallops. It can also be enjoyed with Brie or aged Gouda cheese.
