Winemaker's Notes

The crisp, clean methode champenoise character of this Extra Dry features a classic balance of fruit characteristics in the master blend. The more viscous texture of red varietal grapes ideally complements the steely delicacy of white fruit. Because an exceedingly crisp and austere style does not appeal to everyone, a sweeter dosage lends easy-going appeal.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and round with flavors of pear and white cherries, this toasty sparkler has a frisky sweetness for an afternoon apertif."
