Tasting Notes

Pale straw-gold with fine, energetic bubbles. Layered aromas of baked yellow apple tart, honey, clover hay and wax. Lively and bright with racy acidity beautifully harmonized by a textured, creamy mid-palate and persistent length. Vibrancy, elegance and delicacy. 

This is a versatile food pairing wine that is ideal with shellfish or white meat dishes, cream or butter sauces.
