SPARKLING

Thornton Wine NV Cuvée Rouge
California

Complete your barbecue menu with a bottle of the unique Cuvée Rouge, where a blend of 67 per cent Syrah and 33 per cent Grenache come together to form a rich sparkling wine. Plum and black cherry aromas lead to a mouth of big red fruit flavors with a touch of lavender and white chocolate. A well balanced mouthfeel and velvety tannins lead to a closing with hints of toasted oak.
