Gruet Family Sauvage Blanc De Blancs ZD 

I haven’t been drinking a lot of wine whilst on holidays here in Kaua’i, Hawai’i. This one came from the Princeville Wine Market, a very small but classy boutique. 

Apparently the Gruet family are of Champagne stock and recognised the potential of the fruit from this site in New Mexico. 

Gruet, Sauvage ZD, Sparkling Chardonnay, New Mexico, NV


Methodé Champenoise. Cork. Nose of light biscuit crust, wheat, ever so sweet vanilla and tonic. Crisp and refreshing palate: lemon drop clean. Acidity is pleasing and doesn’t appear forced. Mousse is a little rough, but has the potential to grind down any aperitif. Impressive bubbles. 

RRP: US $22.99

Alc:12.5%

Wine purchased with exorbitant exchange rates.
