The 2019 growing season here in Pilot Mountain was marked by very little rainfall, warm sunny days with a constant breeze flowing through the vineyards. This crisp, clean, well balanced and refreshing wine is layered with vibrant aromas of cranberry, strawberry and a citrus zest. On the finish, hints of red berries dance on the palate ending with a twinkle of citrus and minerals. This is a very enjoyable sparkling wine alone but also pairs well with shellfish, caviar, seafood, chicken, roasted pork, pate and eggs. This sparkling wine should be consumed within the next four to five years to savor the balance of fruit and acidity.
