Albarino’s fresh floral, peach and citrus flavors are showcased in this methode traditionelle sparkling wine. Very tangy, floral/citrus basket aroma, loads of fruity, electric flavor. I love the balance of ripe fruit and energetic acidity. Made to capture every ounce of freshness possible.
Carboniste makes a variety of sparkling wines out of different grapes (Albarino, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir bottlings in their current release with more to come). I like the Carboniste wines I’ve tasted a lot, and I really like their forward-thinking attitude of understanding the changing wine market and creating artisan sparkling wines to satisfy these customers.
I like how they describe themselves: “C A R B O N I S T E is a dedicated producer of modern sparkling wines. Our goal is to discover a new terroir for California sparkling wines. Champagne is from France. CARBONISTE is California!”
