Winemaker's Notes:

An extremely fine, effusive mousse carries mouthwatering aromas of crisp, ripe apple, Asian pear, Meyer lemon and brioche emanating from this elegant wine. On the palate, the wine is almost lush, full and creamy yet clean and refreshing, with beautifully integrated flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue, vanilla and lovely mineral notes on a fresh, well balanced and enduring finish.

An exquisite accompaniment to a wide variety of appetizers from sashimi to roasted nuts, grilled prawns to fresh crab to caviar, this wine also matches splendidly with a host of cheeses, like triple cream Brie and Fontina, and has the structure, complexity and acidity to pair with an entire menu.

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.
