This dry white wine opens with the bright acidy of lemon peel and citrus blossom on the nose; followed by pleasant soft bubbles offering flavors of grapefruit and peaches, with a medium-plus finish.
Midnight Bubbly started as an idea to make a wine we could ring in the New Year with. We wanted a dry and semi-crisp wine that was also refreshing. Our winemaking team spent months performing blending trials before zeroing in on Chardonnay as the predominant grape with Cayuga and Seyval Blanc rounding out the blend. The acid found in Chardonnay plays a pivotal role in acquiring the attributes we were looking for. We decided to incorporate the Cayuga and Seyval Blanc as they have similar qualities as Chardonnay, and also help bring fruity aromas out in the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
While a classic wine to enjoy for any celebration, this bubbly is also an excellent companion to fatty dishes like steak, fried chicken, and mac and cheese, but of course, it is enjoyed alongside the classic caviar and oyster pairings as well!
