Tasting Notes

"Strings of dainty pearls in liquid gold". Made in the traditional Frenchmethod of allowing a second fermentation to take place in the bottle. Theextended period on lees, allowed time to add to the creamy complexity of thissparkling wine. It resulted in a bouquet of baked brioche, apples with freshlemon and grapefruit aromas, enticing your senses. A vibrant sparkling winewith a crisp and integrated acidity.
