| Elvis Presley Graceland Cellars “All Shook Up” California Champagne|
Description: Non Vintage California Sparkling Wine
History: “All Shook Up” was first recorded, as "I'm All Shook Up" by David Hill on Aladdin Records. Elvis displayed his genius at taking a simple premise and molding it into a pop masterpiece, much as he had on "Don't Be Cruel." Infusing the loping beat of the song with his infectious humor and personality, everything about Elvis' performance, from his vocal delivery to his own percussive slaps on the back of his guitar, all sprung from his own creative impulses.
Tasting Notes: The bouquet is full of golden apple and tropical fruit aromas, while the palate is a complex balance of refined acidity and creaminess.
Meal Pairings:, Perfect as an aperitif to enjoy now.
