Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe golden apples, acacia, and honeysuckle are exhibited on the nose. On the palate, the wine is dry, fresh and fruit-driven with citrus and stone-fruit flavors.

Whole grapes are softly pressed, and the must is stored in controlled temperature tanks after a first racking. It is then inoculated with selected yeast cultures, and fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 15-16°C (60°F). Upon reaching the required alcohol and sugar content, fermentation is stopped by refrigeration. After a two month period on lees, the sparkling wine is ready for bottling.

    "An attractive value, this is generous and fresh, with layers of citrus, peach, honey and dried grass. Pair this with cheese appetizers or Parmigiano chunks."

    Joshua Greene, Wine & Spirits, 2014 August

    "(Best Buy) Supple bubbles keep this wine lively, zipping away the sweetness and bringing out lemon-lime and green-apple flavors. A clean, pleasantly sweet sparkler for grilled prawns with fruit salsa."
