Uncorked: 2008.04.18 – Joyce Davis 80th Birthday Dinner

An alternative to traditional champagne, this sparkling wine has a pleasant, fresh sweetness that will appeal to many.

Simple nose with honeysuckle, apple, and baked pear, each of which continued in the mouth.  Nice small bubbles.  The mouth-feel is luscious for a wine of this price.  The fruit is balanced with plenty of minerality and toast on the finish.  Very nice on its own, and a “party for your mouth” with the addition of a strawberry slice!  This wine is an excellent value and quite accessible for less experienced wine drinkers.
