Winemaker Notes

A complex interplay of subtly nuanced berry and cherry aromas marries with mature yeast characters and a trace of graphite in the nose of this well-developed yet remarkably fresh sparkling wine. The wine holds in exquisite balance full, round, abundant flavors of citrus, ripe apple, spice and toast with vibrant acidity that refreshes the palate throughout an extremely long finish.

This wine pairs beautifully with a wide variety of appetizers and tapas ranging from toasted almonds and marinated olives to fried calamari or seared scallops. Enjoy it with smoked fish, Brie or aged Gouda cheese, steamed mussels, barbecue pork and chicken. Seasoning affinities include citrus peel and tarragon.

67% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
CG 89
Connoisseurs' Guide
67% Pinot Noir; 33% Chardonnay. Intriguing perfumes of creme brulee, Meyer lemon, hints of cherry, creamy yeast and a subtle whiff of vanilla lead to frothy bubbles and flavors that are both minerally and just a touch sweeter than expected. It is fairly long at the end, and its richness carries it into a comfortable finish. It would be an easy wine to like as a stand-alone aperitif, yet it will also be at home with light entrees.

Image of winery
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.

Carneros

View all wine

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. The cooling winds from the abutting San Pablo Bay, combined with lots of midday California sunshine, create an ideal environment for producing wines with a perfect balance of crisp acidity and well-ripened fruit.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Carneros is an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne as well.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
