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.

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 marzipan, peach and cherry flavors as lively acidity envelopes the palate. It’s a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir.

Tasting Panel

This blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir produced in the méthode Champenoise comes in at a low 12% ABV. The tiny bubbles leave behind refreshingly clean notes of apple pie, peanut brittle, and lemon chiffon. Nicely balanced, with a finish of apricot and biscuit.
