Sparkling Pointe Cuvee Carnival 2014
Cuvée Carnaval Blanc features a pale straw color with a soft effervescent light-to-medium body. A most aromatic wine, the nose features notes of pear and peach with floral undertones. This is a sweeter cuvée with flavors of strawberry, tropical fruits, and cherry blossom with a lush lingering finish. A unique liquor de dosage that includes 4% Gewürztraminer adds a hint of lychee fruit. Great as an apéritif!
