Give mom what she wants with Sterling Vineyards wines
This Mother’s Day, avoid the brunch rush, the overpriced prix fixe, and the hoards with their wilted tulips and baby’s breath. Instead, I’d love to invite you to avoid the busiest restaurant day of the year and treat mom to some of her favorite wines this Mother’s Day.
Iconic Napa Valley winery Sterling Vineyards has you covered for a polished day celebrating mom with a lovely rosé and already wrapped sparkling wines Mom will love!
Sterling Vintners Collection Rosé 2016 (SRP $12; available nationwide) is light pink in color with aromas of strawberries, fresh picked berries and subtle floral notes. A blend of Syrah and Tempranillo, the wine’s palate has a richness balanced by a refreshing, racy acidity and flavors of pink citrus and orange blossom.
Looking for sparkling options? Sterling’s two new sparkling wines are foil wrapped and gifting ready, and make for the perfect toast to mom for the holiday. Sterling Blanc de Blancs 2016 (SRP $28; available nationwide), made from 100% Napa Valley Chardonnay, pours a glistening pale straw color with ribbons of fine bubbles.
Distinct aromas of green apple, lemon citrus, pear and lemon cream are prominent. The palate is fresh with fruit-forward flavors, floral notes and a soft, creamy texture. This is a sophisticated and elegant wine with balanced fruit, structure and acidity.
Sleek, elegant, and richly complex, Sterling Sparkling Rosé 2016 (SRP $28; available nationwide) is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, fermented in stainless steel to maintain freshness, with limited skin contact to give it body and depth.
An elegant pale salmon pink color in the glass, this wine boasts fresh aromas of strawberry, cherry blossom, rose petal and crisp apple, leading to a lush palate of upfront fruit flavors, balanced by creamy texture and bright acidity.
