Glass of Bubbly Review of Breathless Wines
“Sparkling Wines That Pair Well With Life’s Special Moments”
Breathless Wines is located North of San Francisco in the State of California, America, it was built by three sisters, Sharon, Rebecca, and Cynthia. Along with Breathless Winemaker Penny Gadd-Coster, the sisters are dedicated to making Sparkling Wine in the traditional method from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Each bottle is aged with the yeast still in the bottle for 2 to 4 years. Their bottles are riddled mechanically using a machine called a gyropalette this simulates manual riddling on a larger scale.
We have two of Breathless Wines here to review, the Blanc De Noirs and the Blanc De Blancs.
The woman on the label is a tribute to their Mother, Martha, and all the men and women who teach and remind us to take each breath we are given as a gift to be cherished.
Blanc De Noirs Tasting Notes: “Strawberries and raspberries on the nose. Fruity flavours with green apple skin with gooseberries in the mouth. A Silver Medal Winner in the Fruity & Floral Category in The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2017.” Click for Full Review.
Blanc De Blancs Tasting Notes: “Slight touch of petrol with citrus on the nose. Tropical fruits, pineapple and citrus in the mouth. A Bronze Medal Winner in the Fruity & Floral Category in The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2017.” Click for Full Review.
In my opinion, they are both fabulous wines, with each bringing something different to the table, even though they are non-vintage wines they have both aged very well and I personally think they would now receive a higher score in The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards this year.
