Intro to Cycles Gladiator Monterey –
Cycles Gladiator Chardonnay Monterey USA is a rich, ripe tropical Monterey Chardonnay with appealing toasty soft fruit and a long taste.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The Cycles Gladiator Chardonnay from Monterey County has lots of toasted ripe fruity layers of pineapple, pear, and citrus with lengthy, round creamy aftertaste that lingers.
The producer –
Produced by Hahn Family Wines Cycles Gladiator is one of the winery’s most sought after brands not least thanks to the scandal that broke out in 2009 when the Alcoholic Beverages Board in the state of Alabama banned the sale of the wines after deeming the label pornographic, which promptly bought world-wide fame for the brand!
Cycles Gladiator symbolizes a celebration of the freedom and happiness that pervaded Europe in the late 19th centuryan era known as the Belle Epoque. This era marked many notable inventions and improvements to daily life, one of which was the modern bicycle or Le Bicycle Velocipede.
Started in Paris in 1891 Gladiator was one of the dozens of bicycle companies that saturated the market when the cycling craze boomed. The Golden Age of cycling reached its pinnacle in 1895and that same year printer G. Massias unveiled one of the great Parisian advertising posters of the stylish Cycles Gladiator that graces the bottles of this range of classic wines.
