White Flowers Sparkling Riesling

Uncork to open

Friends don’t let friends waste wine all over their ships.

Ah, two bottles of NV White Flowers Brut Sparkling Riesling and two bottles of NV White Flowers Sweet Sparkling Riesling. Nice choice! But, there is one thing. Before I let you buy those, I just gotta make sure you understand: these wines are for drinking. Not boat-christening.

Maybe it seems like a weird thing to say, but we’ve had a lot of people coming in looking for sparkling wine recently, and when we ask them what exactly they prefer, they say, “Something that smashes nicely on a hull.”

And that’s totally fair, considering that recent study that outlined the christened vs. non-christened sink rates. But we just want to make sure that you know this is drinking wine. The Brut’s lip-smacking flavors of spiced Granny Smith apple, lemon, and dried apricot are meant to melt in your mouth, not on your boat. And the same goes for the Sweet’s floral, yeasty notes.

If you’re looking for some boat-christening wine, we keep a cases of cheap stuff in the back. It’s all bubble and no business, so it looks nice and flashing when it cracks open, and you don’t have to waste this good stuff out on the dock. Understand? Good.

NV White Flowers Brut Sparkling Riesling
 
  • Alcohol: 11.5%
Surprisingly juicy and full-bodied. Lip-smacking flavors of spiced Granny Smith apple, lemon, and dried apricot will restore hope in anyone disappointed by one too many encounters with a wimpy sparkling wine. Presenting beautiful floral aromatics and a clean finish, this dry sparkling wine is aged sur lie for a balanced and textured profile. White Flowers is a refreshing change from other sparkling wines.
 
NV White Flowers Sweet Sparkling Riesling
 
  • Alcohol: 12%

The “White Flowers” Sparkling Riesling is floral, yeasty, low alcohol (11.5%) and sweetish. Riesling is a fantastic grape for Sparkling wine production, it has high acid and it is quite fragrant early in the ripening season.  It is a great Riesling single vineyard sparkler to drink as an aperitif for fun.
