2008 SP Rosé

Acquired by Donald Trump in April 2011, Kluge Vineyard and Estate in Charlottesville, Virginia, is now Trump Winery and Vineyard Estates. Kluge's red and sparkling wines have been served at the White House and at Chelsea Clinton's wedding rehearsal dinner. Made according to the Méthode Champenoise, the SP Rosé is composed mostly of Chardonnay grapes with the addition of five per cent Pinot Noir. Raspberry and rose on the nose and strawberry on the palate make this a light and fruity sparkler.
