  • Riesling
Critic's Rating 91 pts

In true Twisted style, the 2020 Sparkling Twisted is an adventurous blend comprised of mainly Riesling with a hint of Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. These components come together to make a lively, fresh and fruity bubbly. Made in the Charmat Method of winemaking, this wine was aged on lees in the tank for over a month, a secondary fermentation then occurred in the tank, developing fruity aromatics while maintaining bright acidity.

Plenty of lemon, sweet tarts, and hints of white peach on the nose. Lively fresh acidity that is balanced by a fruit-forward palate. Extremely clean finish.
