Gloria Ferrer Carneros Cuvee sparkling wine

2003 Carneros Cuvée

The Carneros Cuvée is our Tête de Cuvée. It represents the best fruit from our 335 acres of estate vineyards as well as our winemaking expertise in the art of blending. This special Cuvée is only produced in a select vintage year. Our 2003 vintage is a blend of Pinot Noir (53%) and Chardonnay (47%), offering a synthesis of effusive ripe fruit expression with superb structure and finesse. With over 10 years en tirage and a minimum of six months on the cork, this decade-old wine is remarkably fresh, rich and complex and represents the ultimate statement of our sparkling house style.

TASTING NOTES

This effervescent sparkling wine opens up with aromas of Asian pear, Granny Smith apples and hints of toasted brioche. On the palate, this wine carries great finesse and a wonderful complexity. Flavors of baked apple and Meyer lemon create for a balanced acidity and lingering finish.
