This delicious bubbly is full of toasty nut-like flavors and gives way to a smooth clean finish. Perfect for any special occasion!
Elegant yeast and delicate fruit delightfully intermingle in the 2005 Brut sparkling wine from Glenora Wine Cellars. The grapes were grown during the warm 2005 vintage near Seneca Lake, producing delicate strawberry and elegant apple flavors. This sparkling wine was filled into tirage for the secondary fermentation during the summer of 2006, producing a profusion of tiny bubbles that explode to the surface upon opening the bottle. A moderate dosage of 1.2% provides a clean, crisp balance on the palate. The blend is classically proportioned at 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir, and a moderate dosage adds luscious creaminess.
