KORBEL SWEET CUVÉE CALIFORNIA CHAMPAGNE

Produced via the traditional méthode champenoise, this new sparkler is a blend of four grape varieties: Chenin Blanc for forward fruit, Chardonnay for body and structure, French Colombard for bright acidity, and Muscat Canelli for full bouquet.  A “topping off” dosage of sweet wine just before corking enhances the distinctive personality of the Cuvée.  Fresh, forward peach, nectarine and tropical fruit aromas are accented by subtle yeast notes.  The flavors are fresh and forward, with peach, pineapple and tropical fruit character complemented by effervescence and medium sweetness.  Suggested retail is $12.99.  Available from Horizon Beverage Company.
