Description

"...offers a pretty bouquet of sliced green apples, brioche, and hints of lemon curd. Playing in the medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a vibrant, racy mousse, bright acidity, and a clean, crisp, nicely balanced finish. It's well done and an impressive sparkler from the team at Fess Parker." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...a very pretty, pleasant wine. Citrus peel, white flower, mint and white pepper add lovely aromatic top notes and dimension to this sculpted wine." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

The 2017 Fesstivity Blanc de Blancs has bright, fresh aromas of citrus and lemongrass with hints of biscuit and a subtle minerality.  Flavors of green apple, citrus and mineral notes are made more complex with hints of caramel and toast.
