Lot #15 GLORIA FERRER
ABOUT THE WINE:
This is Gloria Ferrer’s first adventure into creating a “Sparkling Rouge” and is an exciting deviation from the more classically-styled, traditional method offerings that the brand has been perfecting over the last 35 years and more. Recently, Harry Hansen, Senior Vice President of Winegrowing and Winemaking, has been experimenting with other unique expressions of sparkling wines, and this “Sparkling Rouge” exemplifies the delectable beauty that these innovations can offer.
Inspired by their family’s over 100-year-old tradition of creating world-class sparkling wine, original founders Jose and Gloria Ferrer arrived in Sonoma in the 1980s and founded the first sparkling winery in Carneros. Ever since then, Gloria Ferrer has been dedicated to producing exceptional, traditional method sparkling wine that reflects the union between their passionate Spanish spirit and the unwavering, commitment to Sonoma-grown quality.
A selection of the blend is sourced right from Gloria Ferrer’s estate vineyards in Carneros where they have been tending some of these vines for decades. With Pinot Noir leading the blend, you can expect familiar notes of red fruit, strawberry, raspberry and cherry. These characteristics are balanced by the nontraditional dose of red wine and barrel aging which gives the wine a beautiful depth with robust flavors that are more structured than sweet.
