Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine
More full-bodied than the winery's brut, this Pinot Noir-based bubbly also is richer. It's just beautiful in raspberries and strawberries, with brighter touches of lime, and although the wine has a honeyed sweetness, it's zest acidity makes it finish dry.
Fun and festive, with floral raspberry and graham cracker aromas leading to crisp and succulent lemon and strawberry flavors. A reliable value in California bubbly. (Web Only- 2012)
