Winemaker Notes :

Gloria Ferrer has been perfecting the Royal Cuvee since they served the first vintage to the King and Queen of Spain in 1987. Royal Cuvee is a perfect balance of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that allows for the wine to retain its fruit vibrancy and develop layers of complexity from the extended aging of over 7 years.

The nose opens with bright, crisp green apple, with a touch of honey. The mouth adds stone fruit, citrus and black cherry. The acid is bright and the mouthfeel is crisp leading into a long finish with a touch of Meyer lemon zest.
The vivid acidity showcases the crisp green apple and honey notes of this special cuvée graciously. Cherry and stone fruit flavors create a lively match for spicy curries or Thai influenced dishes. The citrus components are an impeccable match for buttery Belgian waffles with orange marmalade mascarpone to berry scones served with lemon curd.
Blend: 67% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay

Wine EnthusiastDoughy marzipan and shortbread cookie greet the nose and palate initially in this nicely inviting wine, made from a majority of Pinot Noir. Sweet succulent strawberry and peach dot a palate that's both luxurious and velvety, offering length and breadth within a refreshing continuum.
