Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine, Blanc de Blancs, Sonoma County, 750 Millilitre, $25.99
Hand crafted in Sonoma. Fermented in this bottle. Blanc de Blancs are often sommelier favorites because their brisk, bright flavors and mouth-watering acidity make them gorgeously compatible with various courses and cuisines.

Note the enticing orange blossom bouquet, lively bubble trails and foamy mousse. On the palate, the wine is creamy, clean and refreshing. Flavors of Granny Smith apple, lemongrass, dough and vanilla creme resolve with lively mineral notes into a well-balanced finish. Alc. 12.5% by vol.
