NV Pollyanna Polly

Sparkling White Wine

The Story Behind The Name

The Pollyanna Principle is the tendency for people to remember pleasant times more accurately than unpleasant ones. Chester’s mother, Pauline, was a living testament to this truth, always looking on the bright side of life. An eternal optimist,she was known to family and friends alike as Pollyanna Polly.

The Characteristics

The bouquet has touches of granny smith apples and brioche with hints of grilled nuts. It has a fine bead with a creamy and vibrant mousse. The palate is dry, delicate and balanced with fresh oyster shell and lemon like acidity. There is a distinct grapefruit pith character which is long and mineral that rounds out the complex palate. The creamy chardonnay character on the palate adds richness and polish. The taste grows considerably with great minerality and complexity with poise and focus.
