Winemakers Notes

Tiny bubbles elevate an attractive bouquet of ginger and brown spice. Appealing baked apple, honey and cinnamon flavors meld seamlessly with nutty caramel flavors gained from extended sur lie aging. The creamy and seamless structure combined with balanced acidity carries these flavors through the lingering finish.
