Iconic Sparkling winemaker
— LAURENT GRUET —
releases his first creation with Vara.
“What I do is pure méthode champenoise from grape to product, controlling each step. This new exploration in my winemaking is the blend with xarel-lo and macabeo. These pristine white wine grapes from Spain introduce another element in the bottle which makes this iteration of Vara Silverhead Brut beautifully complete.”
Beautiful summer wheat color with persistent stings of tiny bubbles. The classical méthode champenoise aromas of almonds, pears, apricots, and grapefruit blend with the unique chamomile floral and wet stone minerality from the addition of Spanish grapes. The mousse is creamy on the palette, light in body and has refreshing acidity. The complex array of fruit, citrus, floral, and toasty flavors are showcased by a balanced dosage and linger to a very long finish.
Luscious & Lively!
Silverhead Brut Rosado
This wine has an abundance of lively, tiny bubbles against a vibrant pink background. Aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries, hibiscus flowers, and earthy green tea notes. On the palette a balanced, dry, traditionally styled sparkling wine presents a creamy mousse and lively acidity showcases a complex range of flavors: tangerines, ripe strawberries, fresh shortbread cookies, and almonds. The length of flavors is long, the finish crisp and mouthwatering.
