Cruzat, Classico Extra Brut, Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: This lemon-colored sparkling wine has a floral nose of orange citrus and overripe white grapes.
On the palate floral fruit notes shine with strawberry hints.
Of all of Cruzat’s sparkling offerings, this one is most suited for the North American export market due to its fruit-laced elements.
This wine is a blend of pinot noir (60%) and chardonnay (40%).
