Sipping Fine Wine

Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965, with a goal to produce world-class sparkling wines. Today, their son Hugh, continues their mission. A blend of 88% Pinot Noir and 12% Chardonnay with stone and berry fruit aromas and earthy spice. On the palate the light mousse shows cherry, apple and raspberry flavors with biscuit and slight baking spice notes. Lingering finish, lively acidity ending with creamy yeasty tones.

Fresh, bright acidity with a smoked pear profile. Great poolside sparkler!

Course 2 at Mourad, paired with an incredible caviar/molasses/potato/egg concoction that might have been the greatest thing on a plate

My selection for Girls Night in with Kids. Nose of freshly zested orange, cantaloupe and then plum, flan and apple crisp on the palate. Very little acidity so I would give this some more time but it was a crowd pleaser.

Its a blanc de blanc, a 2012, quite decent, good yeast, dry but with a gem feel to it. Was clobbered by the heavy dinner we had with it, but it was meant to be a solo act, not a food accomplice.
