Oregon wine: Montinore Estate Vivacé sparkling wine
Empty bottle weight: 31.1 ounces // 890 grams
Cork and cage closure
Certified organic wine made with biodynamic grapes, indigenous yeast
A blend of Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot gris, and Riesling, this wine has a beautiful label with illustrations of fruits, flowers, and other plants that grow at Montinore Estate. It hints at the aromas and flavors you’ll find within. These white grapes are all very aromatic so expect a wine bouquet in your glass.
This bottle of bubbles has such lovely, floral aromatics! Plumeria, jasmine, and gardenia flowers, plus orange blossoms and lemon curd.
With long-lasting bubbles, and flavors of passionfruit, honeydew melons, green apples, and popsicle stick, this wine is quite vibrant. It’s a flavor rollercoaster, going from tart to sweet and then back to tart, it finishes with notes of salinity and spicy ginger. Some of the bubbles were captured during fermentation, and the rest were added before bottling.
Food pairing suggestions:
This wine begs to be served at brunch! It will pair well with quiche and other egg dishes, salads, and picnics. Don’t forget Easter, Mother’s day and Father’s day!
