Ripe stone fruit medley and citrus intermingle with toast, butter and yeasty aromas on the nose of this well-developed yet vibrantly fresh sparkling wine. Creamy textures with hints of butterscotch and almonds support delicious flavors of pears, apples and lemons. The elegantly structured and long creamy finish is simply irresistible.
Blend: 67% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay
A refreshing and elegant sparkling wine, this leads off with scents of apples and brioche. The flavors are light and yeasty, with lemon-tinged acidity.
Referencing the austere styling of Ferrer's Carneros Cuvée to some little but noticeable extent, this wine is quite fresh and very well-endowed with chalky, yeasty notes. Its refined mousse combines finely honed, small bubbles in an insistent stream that carries its lightly citrusy fruit across the palate and into a long, appropriately crisp aftertaste.
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.
