Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut

Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut 750ml             
Sku: 17089

Tasting notes
Delicate pear and floral notes backed by toasty almond. On the palate, one finds lively citrus, toast and apple flavors overlaid with persistent effervescence, a creamy mid-palate and toasty finish.

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Nov 2013)
This wine shows lots of finesse for the price. The mousse is exceptionally refined, carrying complex flavors of limes, strawberries, brioche, vanilla and honey. The blend is mostly Pinot Noir, with about 9% Chardonnay.
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points (May 2011)
Ultimate Wine Challenge 2011 Finalist. Yeasty, matchstick scent. Smoky minerality infuses this wine’s wild strawberry flavors with a savory push-pull that’s addictive and tasty. It’s full and graceful, shaped by the fine acidity and tiny bubbles. Dried herbs, especially oregano, adds further intrigue.
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Nov 15 2009)
Lively and fun to drink, with creamy Asian pear and citrus aromas that lead to crisp, easygoing apple, yeasty cinnamon and mineral flavors. Drink now through 2012. 103,000 cases made. –TF The #78 in Wine Spectator’s 2009 Top 100

Wine maker notes
The Sonoma Brut has been carefully crafted entirely from hand-harvested Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. Over forty different selections of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are planted on our 340-acre estate in the Sonoma Carneros district. It is this viticultural diversity that allows us to consistently produce cuvees with complexity and clear fruit expression. The Brut is dominated by Pinot Noir, a stylistic decision enabling the complex aromatic and palate profile that this red-skinned grape contributes to Brut cuvees.

Food pairing
A tremendously versatile wine that is equally delicious with shellfish, crab, roasted chicken or sushi. Seasoning affinities include lemon grass, fennel and white pepper. Look to hard aged and triple creme cheeses with Meyer lemon compote for the cheese course.
