“Brillante”, which translates to “Brilliant” in Spanish, is Castillo de Feliciana’s signature sparkling wine. Made from 100% Chardonnay and harvested during the late summer season, “Brillante” is nuanced with aromas of green apple, biscuits, honey, bread dough, and subtleties of vanilla. A refreshing pallet of soft sweetness is balanced with bright acidity, creating a well-balanced flavor profile.
This sparkling wine was produced using the time honored Méthode Tradionnelle. A second fermentation inside the bottle produces the fine effervescence and subtle yeast nuances. Upon completion of this second fermentation, the bottles are “riddled” to collect the yeast, “disgorged” to remove the solids, and finally corked for preservation.
