Va de Vi is the stylish new méthode champenoise sparkling wine that celebrates our Spanish heritage. This ultra-premium cuvée adds new dimension to our house style. Elegant and refreshing, dry but not too dry, Va de Vi is a classic blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with just a trace of Muscat. Va de Vi captures the exuberant aromas and luscious flavors of perfectly ripened fruit and reveals them throughout a long, soft finish.
The wine offers abundant aromas of ripe apple, Asian pear and Bing cherries amid enticing yeasty tones. On the palate, rich flavors of ripe peach, Meyer lemon, fresh berries and vanilla join with creamy textures in a lasting finish.
Va de Vi is a versatile accompaniment to savory hors d'oeuvres like paté or potstickers, delicious with spicy Indian or Thai cuisine, and pairs wonderfully with fruit-based desserts like pound cake with fresh berries, pear or apple tarts. Try it with fresh chèvre, brie or other semi-soft cheeses.
Blend: 89% Pinot Noir, 8% Chardonnay & 3% Muscat
This vibrant wine is loaded with spicy apple-cinnamon aromas, plus accent of lemon curd, toasted nuts and anise. The finish blends a hint of sweetness with crisp acidity. Drink now. 6,143 cases made.
This is basically the same as Gloria's brut, only they added some Muscat and made it a little sweeter. With sugared rapberry, lime, orange and brioche flavors, made brisk with acidity, it will satisfy those who like some plumpness in their sparkling wines.
The intentional blending in of Muscat plus a noticeable bit of sweetness on the palate make Va de Vi a different wine from the traditional French model of crackling austerity. This one is far more of a solo sipper or a mate to Asian or savory bits, and as such, its mix of bright acidity with pear and green apple fruitiness makes it unique in its own right. It is aromatic, energetic and full of creamy bubbles on the palate-and so easy to enjoy.
