More than any other, the appetizer course allows a chef to flex their culinary muscles. And sparkling wine is the ultimate complement to this wide range of textures and flavors. Our Sonoma Brut has been carefully crafted entirely from hand-harvested Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. This brut is dominated by Pinot Noir, a stylistic decision enabling the complex aromatic and palate profile that this red-skinned grape contributes to brut cuvées. On the nose, delicate pear and floral notes are backed by toasty almond. On the palate, one finds lively citrus, toast and apple flavors overlaid with persistent effervescence, a creamy mid-palate and a toasty finish. Aged for a minimum of 18 months, this wine shows delicate pear and floral notes with persistent effervescence and an effortless finish, making it a tremendously versatile sparkling wine.
This chart illustrates the affinity that Gloria Ferrer sparkling wines demonstrate with the wide stylistic range of flavors and ingredients chefs are showcasing in their cuisine.
