Mostly Pinot Noir, with a few drops of Chardonnay and Muscat, this slightly sweet bubbly is a little scoury, with hard-edged bubbles. It has orange, lime and strawberry flavors, with the toasty yeastiness of Champagne.
The wine offers abundant aromas of ripe apple, Asian pear and Bing cherries amid enticing yeasty tones. On the palate, rich flavors of ripe peach, Meyer lemon, fresh berries and vanilla join with creamy textures in a lasting finish.
Wine Maker Notes
VA de VI is a stylish methode champenoise sparkling wine that celebrates our Spanish heritage. This ultra-premium cuvee adds new dimension to our house style. Elegant and refreshing, dry but not too dry, VA de VI is a classic blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with just a trace of Muscat. VA de VI captures the exuberant aromas and luscious flavors of perfectly ripened fruit and reveals them throughout a long, soft finish.
Va de Vi is a versatile accompaniment to savory hors d’oeuvres like pate or potstickers, delicious with spicy Indian or Thai cuisine, and pairs wonderfully with fruit-based desserts like pound cake with fresh berries, pear or apple tarts. Try it with fresh chevre, brie or other semi-soft cheeses.
