Celebrating An Evolution
Every sparkling wine is unique to itself. Evolution, a sparkling wine produced by Sokol Blosser Vineyards is unique that is a blend of multiple grape varietals from multiple vintages. The wine appellation - America and made in the Methode Champenoise.
How many grapes can you fit in a bottle? In this bottle there are nine varietals all with different oak treatments and differing levels of Malic Acid.
What grapes will you find in this bottle. A blend of Muller-Thurgau, Riesling, Semillon, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner.
This is a fun wine. Slightly bready on the nose with hints of orange blossom, tangerine, actually a lot of citrus comes through. On your palate I found more citrus flavors rounding out a hint of sweetness on the finish.
I think this would be great to have for no specific occasion, just having a good day. I love the back of the label as it suggests reasons to celebrate in case you have difficulty finding one.
The wine retails for $24.99
