A simple but flavourful off dry & easy drinking sparkling that’s nice to drink
Description: Gold in colour with a medium intense nose and a fine mousse. This wine features peach, lime, honeydew melon and Kiwi. Medium+ body with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Points: This year’s version is so much better than last years.
Drink now or in the next 2 years on its own or pair it with caviar topped poached eggs on a bed of wilted greens.
