Elegant yeast and delicate fruit delightfully intermingle in the 2015 Blanc de Blanc sparkling wine from Glenora Wine Cellars. The grapes were grown during the warm 2014 vintage near Seneca Lake, Producing delicate and elegant apple flavors. This sparkling wine has filled into tirage for the secondary fermentation during the summer of 2016, producing a profusion of tiny bubbles that explode to the surface upon opening the bottle. A moderate dosage of 1.2% provides a clean, crisp balance on the palate. The blend is 100% Chardonnay and the moderate dosage adds luscious creaminess.
Glenora Wine Cellars has been known for high quality sparkling wines since the 1981 vintage. In the late ‘90’s Wine & Spirits Magazine considered Glenora to be one of the “Great Sparkling Wine Producers in the U.S.,” the only New York winery out of 10 or so “Great Producers.”
