Nouvelle is a charmat style sparkling wine, which means it got its bubbles in tank rather than the traditional champenois method in bottle. The process is common among Italian proseccos and yields a fruitier, more delicate wine due to its shorter contact with the wine lees. Nouvelle is made from estate grown Vidal Blanc and 10% traminette; the same grapes that go into our Joy White but at a different blend and picked and processed specifically for sparkling wine production. Pineapple and peach jump out of the glass and the palate is lively with acidity brought into balance with a hint of sweetness- equivalent to a Dry/Sec/Secco Champagne or Prosecco. A great wine for any celebration.
