My cousin and I visited St. Julian Winery last year when I was visiting Michigan. I had tasted a few wines of theirs before, but had never visited their tasting room. That changed last September! I loved one of their sparkling wines, and opened it a few days ago to celebrate – Saturday?
The Braganini Reserve Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Wine is non-vintage, and I found it impossible to decipher the Braganini on the label. That was my only gripe though. St. Julian’s tasting notes describe it as, “light golden, butter cream yellow in color. Lively, lemony acidity gives the spicy citrus and Bartlett pear flavors excellent structure and complexity. Crisp in texture, with shades of toast weaving through the lemon zest and honey suckle flavors with a refreshing Honeycrisp apple finish.”
I wish I had more of this wine! It was delicious!
