NV Sparkling Pointe ‘Cuvee Carnaval,’ North Fork of Long Island

Is there someone in your life who will drink no sparkling wine other than Moscato? It’s time to introduce them to something a bit more, uh, sophisticated. This is a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend that also includes a splash of one other varietal: surprisingly, Gewurztraminer. That’s what provides the hint of sweetness, along with an engaging spice note. Medium-bodied, the cuvee also offers impressions of honey, apple, pear, stone fruit and a hint of lychee. Sneak your Moscato-loving friend a glass of “Carnaval,” and keep the party rolling.
MSRP: $27 (March 2013)
