Sparkling Pointe Brut
|Region||United States, New York, North Fork of Long Island|
Spine tingling acidity is offset by streaks of fresh tangerine, lemon and apple flavors in this laser-edged sparkling wine. It's persistent in petillance but boasts a distinct delicacy of mousse. The finish is fresh and perfumed, ending on a lingering white-blossom note.
The NV Brut is a blend of 38% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay and 24% Reserve Wine with 7 grams per liter of residual sugar and an alcohol level of 12.5%. I don't normally review NV bottles than can't be uniquely identified, but since I haven't seen this producer before, it makes a good point of comparison with its pricier sibling reviewed this issue. This is very fine, a harmonious blend with perfect balance, a hint of sugar and smooth texture. Fresh, clean and tasty, it is hard to resist. Make no mistake, though; this is not just a simple, fruity Brut. This shows excellent focus, acidity and grip on the finish. For a winery's NV Brut, it is pretty nice. There were 1,767 cases produced.
