Kudos to the LCBO to bring this sparkling to Ontario so we can experience wines from throughout the US & in this case, New Mexico. Let me just add, this is a wonderful Blanc de Noirs

Tasting Note: Pale salmon hue in colour with fine creamy mousse, good acidity, a medium+ intense nose & a long length on the finish. Wine features brioche, light yeast, strawberry, Spy apple, pear, Rainier cherry & shale.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Their story is of French roots and American dreams. https://www.gruetwinery.com/heritage

Pairings: Drink now or over the next 7-10 of years on its own or pair it with spicy seafood paella.

My Opinion: Highly Recommended
