SPARKLING

Thornton Winery
Non-Vintage Brut

This California sparkling wine is a blend of primarily Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, which gives the wine a crisp fruit character. A clean and straightforward yeast flavor comes from the wine’s lengthy tirage time. The addition of a small amount of Pinot Noir helps to round out the wine, giving it complexity. This sparkler shows finesse along with apple, pear, and tropical aromas, which meld with toasty yeast flavors. The finish is long and creamy.

Rating: 13.5/20
