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.
