Sipping Fine Wine

Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965. Today, their son Hugh, continues their mission. Coming off their highly successful recent vintages, the 2016 is also 100% Chardonnay straw with aromas of floral stone fruits and citrus notes. A terrific crisp sparkler with crisp apple, peach and lemon flavors, fine mousse with tiny bubbles. Tangy acidity on a lingering finish ending with a yeasty creamy character. Nice!

Lemon zest on nose. Medium body, mildly acidic, tiny bubbles. Lots of green apples and pear. Lovely.
