River Stone Sparkling White Merlot 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of the prolific frizzante wines in BC, this is a unique blend of merlot with a splash of malbec. Sweeter pear, Rainier cherry, apple blossom on the off-dry, frothy and juicy palate. There's a riff of spice that tightens (and saves) the finish, making this appropriate wine for bigger brunch items or savoury canap├ęs this summer.Tasted: 27 July 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
