Troon Vineyard Piquette! unpretentious, dry, fruity, low alcohol
"The frugal farmer's fizz" made from the pomace remaining from the wine pressings.
This fizzy wine has a lot of different, unique aromatics! I smelled fruity notes of strawberries, dried peaches, and golden raisins, along with floral aromas of orange blossoms and a meadow of wildflowers. Minerally fresh rain played with spicy, grated ginger, making the Troon Piquette! one of the most interesting wines I’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling. That variety of aromatics must the result of all those different grape varietals coming together into one wine!
The Piquette! flavors are just as interesting as the smells too. I tasted those strawberries and golden raisins from the bouquet, along with bing cherries. A second sip revealed notes of salinity and camomile tea. The bubbles are soft and gentle, culminating in a slightly smoky finish.
