This perfect introduction to Paula Kornell’s sparkling wines has all the elegance, refinement, and freshness that one would expect from the best bubbles. Its racy acidity makes the wine lively and refreshing, while the small amount of residual sugar gives the wine weight and depth alongside the aromas of lemon pith, fresh peaches, just-ripe apricots, toast, acacia, and honeysuckle. Ideal for a Sunday afternoon in the garden, a weekend picnic, or at the beginning of a meal, this approachable and highly drinkable wine will satisfy all tastes.
Fruit for this wine comes from some of the coolest growing regions around California, ideal for growing Chardonnay and producing wines with racy acidity.
94 Points Wine Enthusiast – This inaugural release is stunning and incredibly impressive—a wine well worth stocking up on for the price and quality. A beautiful jasmine aroma leads to marzi-pan, peach and cherry flavors as lively acidity envelopes the palate.
90 Points Wine Spectator – “Creamy and vibrant, with apple and snappy strawberry flavors that offer a dash of brioche on the finish. Drink now.”
