2018 Sparkling Rose La Grande Sofi
Fresh and crisp, some doughy components, some citrus notes with lots of creamy texture. Very elegant nose with hints of apple and warm bread with a lush and velvety mouth feel which exhibits minerality and vanilla. A refreshing style, truly elegant sparkling with a pale salmon color yet made in a traditional French style from one of the most iconic coastal vineyards of the Central Coast located in Pismo Beach. Hand riddled for 8 weeks.
