Tasting Note This local sparkler 'opens' up with aromas of citrus and baked apple cinnamon notes. The bubbles are persistent and lively and the palate sings of red delicious apple and pear. With a hint of mandarin orange on the finish, this off-dry bubbly would be the perfect Chinese take-out partner. Serving Suggestion try with chicken stir fry or Chinese take-out

A pleasant light simple sparkler with vague floral and fruit aromas. It is well balanced with some fruit sweetness...

Charmat method, this sparkling wine shows medium straw colour with medium nose intensity & fine mousse. The nose has a very nice Easter lily aroma along with green & red apple, peach, lemon & some minerality. Taste is dry, medium acidity, medium body, long length & balanced. Easy drinking that has green & red apples, lemon/lime, limestone & peach. Not a complex wine, just easy going. This sparkler was a pleasant surprise to me with no negatives. Drink on its own or pair it with Capresse salad.

Best Buy.

A great everyday sparkling with toasty notes and not too much fruit with decent balance. I highly recommend for the price. Good value.
