Once you pop...

If you’ve never had the opportunity to try Gruet, you are in for a treat. Perfect for celebrating any occasion - including Saturday afternoon - this showstopper is an unparalleled value. Just pop the cork and find out what we’re talking about!

Medium, rich golden hues. On pouring, this bubbly wine shows off some of the softest and most dense mousse we’ve seen in a sparkling wine. Tiny bubbles make a continuous upward cascade, eventually clinging to the rim of the flute like a string of tiny pearls. Green apple, lemon zest, lemon curd, white flowers, lime leaf, brioche, almond and pear. Ultra flavorful, with pear, lemon curd, Asian pear, Golden Delicious apple, pineapple, white flowers, subtle lime leaf and a hint of subtle white spice. After the rush of creamy bubbles across the whole palate, fresh fruit flavors settle onto the tongue. They remain there long after your sip, gradually fading to reveal subtle mineral, almond and ultra subtle white spice notes. Enjoy this wine with any festive event, with appetizers, fruits and cheeses, or as an easy, delicious aperitif.

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

90 Points - “A sleek, expressive sparkler, with floral apple and toasty cinnamon aromas leading to crisp flavors of lime and mineral.” - Tim Fish, Wine Spectator.
