Disclaimer: I received this as a sample from Clinton Vineyards
New Years was upon us and this bottle didn’t make it until the 31st. We actually opened the bottle of Clinton Vineyards NV Jubilee a few days before New Years Eve. If you don’t already know, I’m not a big bubbly person, but I think with a little practice my palate is loosening up to the bubbles.
As the bottle opened, I found the aroma a bit bready, but not overpowering. It soon lead way to aromas of green apples.
The sparkling wine was nice, crisp and dry. It had a beautiful soft, creamy silky mouth feel with soft bubbles. It was a little tart on the finish.
This sparkling is made with 100% Seyval Blanc grapes in the traditional method. The wine sells for $35.
