Winemaker's Notes:

An abundant mousse and enticing aromas of delicate orange blossoms, ripe Gravenstein apple, vanilla and brioche announce this elegant Blanc de Blancs. Its full, creamy entry on the palate reveals complex flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue and hints of white chocolate along with mineral notes that persist on a fresh, lasting, precisely balanced finish.

A versatile accompaniment to a wide variety of appetizers from fresh oysters to toasted almonds, mussels to grilled prawns and, yes, caviar, this wine also matches superbly with a variety of cheeses like triple creams, Brie and Fontina.

About Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards:

Gloria Ferrer is the offspring of a powerful parent: Freixenet of Spain, the world's largest producer of sparkling wine. Drawn to the promise of California, Freixenet established a California winery, naming it after the wife of Freixenet's president. The winery in Carneros is one of the best stops in all of Wine Country. Visit the aging caves carved in the hillside and enjoy the sun-splashed deck while noshing on roasted almonds and sipping bubbly. Wines produced are Blanc de Noir, Brut, Brut Rose, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Rose.
