Navarro Correas, Espumante Extra Brut
Espumante Extra Brut

 

Tasting Notes: For three centuries, the famed Navarro Correas winery has innovated and set the standards of excellence in Mendoza, Argentina. First, it was with Malbec, planted by Juan de Dios Correas in 1798, and re-defining the possibilities of the terrific, yet obscure French-origin varietal. Now, it is with their remarkably expressive sparkling wines – grown at altitude, and made in a crystalline, vivacious style that offers the rare opportunity to taste an “Alpine Sparkler”. With over three months on lees, this blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Chenin Blanc delivers the great structure and delicacy only possible at high-altitude.
