SPARKLING

L. Mawby
Blanc de Blancs


Larry Mawby has been producing wines on Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula since 1978. All of his L. Mawby label sparkling wines are made using the traditional Méthode Champenoise and are aged in the bottle before disgorging. Made mostly from Chardonnay grapes, the Blanc de Blancs is nicely structured with medium bubbles. Aromas of crisp spiced apple and baked peach follow through to fresh and lively flavors of ginger and grapefruit.
