Eufloria, Banfi Wines, Washington State ($950)
This wine is a secret blend made from the finest aromatic grapes grown in Eastern Washington. The grapes are gently handled and fermented for 30 days. The slight residual sugar in the wine is natural and comes from arresting fermentation. The wine is aged for 6 months and the carbonation is added during the kegging process. Vineyards are located in Washington State. The grapes are grown in soil that is wind-blown loess on basalt bedrock. The bouquet is floral with tropical fruit. Notes of pear, green apple, quince.
