Cadre Ode to Pearls Sparkling Albarino 2017
EDNA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
A perfect and elegant sparkling wine for any occasion, this wine continues to evolve as the effervescence keeps the aromatics of this wine in constant flux. An explosion of lively green apple, citrus and salty baking spices with floral notes of jasmine and ginger. The zero dosage element of this wine has it dancing on the palate from start to finish. It's alive with an array of citrus, mineral and spice. Up front, brine and stone fruit settle in with an exotic fruit element.
