Reminds me of a sweet non-alcoholic sparkling wine you get at a supermarket

Description: Yellow gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features orange, mango, yellow apples, bubble gum and orange blossoms on the nose. Medium body with fair acidity and an average length.

Negatives: Too sweet for me, even as an aperitif

Interesting Note: Selkies are mythological creatures found in Scottish, Irish, and Faroese folklore. Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea, but shed their skin to transform into their human form on land, dance along the moonlit shores, bask in the sun on outlying skerries, and be with their human loves.

Drink now on its own or pair it with Brioche Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.
