Afton Mountain Methode Champonoise 2008 not released yes, 50% pinot noir 50% chardonnay. Traditionally hand riddled bubbly.
All estate fruit. Nice crisp green apple, bubbles are a bit big but this is really impressive for a Virginia wine. YES you CAN change a wine brats mind! Retails for $30, and only 200 cases were produced.
This is a great example of sparkling wine that is not either Champagne or sparkling from California which I love, but from an alternative region. This is a nice sparkler that could be a tad colder – but – in 100degree heat and 100% humidity, what can I say.
