Nose

The 2014 Querencia blooms with bright aromas of raspberry, mandarin orange and peach, which are rounded off by hints of red apple, pear and strawberry.

Palate

The palate sustains vibrant flavors of juicy citrus, apricot, mango, and key lime, that linger in the mouth thanks to a strong acidic backbone, and finishes with crispness and balance.

Growing Conditions

Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. Primary Vineyards: Tognetti, Hyde, Ramsey, Jones

Winemaking

Chardonnay forms the blend's core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color. Barrel Fermentation: 36%

Food Pairing

This brut rosé sparkling wine is hearty enough to complement the robust flavors of Mediterranean cooking and delicate enough to be served with a truly broad range of appetizers.
