Gloria Ferrer Brut Sonoma
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
Delicate pear and floral notes backed by toasty almond. On the palate, one finds lively citrus, toast & apple flavors overlaid with persistent effervescence, a creamy mid-palate and toasty finish. A tremendously versatile wine that is equally delicious with shellfish, crab, roasted chicken or sushi. Seasoning affinities include lemon grass, fennel and white pepper. Look to hard aged and triple crème cheeses with Meyer lemon compote for the cheese course.
A rich, exuberant nose of apple and sea spray leads to a steely palate built up by nervy, focused acidity. Accents of oyster shell and earth permeate the midpalate in this Pinot Noir-dominant sparkler.
Fresh and vibrant, with easygoing, refreshing flavors of green apple and lime. Drink now. 55,000 cases made.
Their NV Sparkling Sonoma Brut, which is a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend and probably their largest production, has attractive notes of white currant, green apple and grapefruit in a fresh, straightforward, easygoing style. Drink it over the next several years.
