An elegant and pleasant wine with a golden straw color, delicate nose, and a fresh, crisp taste of green apple. Its slightly sweet nature is balanced by moderate acidity and light bubbles. This is the perfect bottle to pop the cork in order to celebrate any special occasion with a toast.
Why is Sparkling White Wine a favorite for food and wine pairings? The innate bubbles of sparkling wine offer an added layer of pairing versatility. At the same time, the coveted acidity of the wine carries rich, butter-laden fare even further on the palate.

• Cheese, mushroom, or Chicken Alfredo lasagna
• Fruit-based desserts such as tarts, crêpes, strawberry shortcake, and any buttered or honeyed dessert


Notes

All the grapes were crushed together and after a short maceration, they are pressed and fermented in stainless steel. After fermentation, the wine was aged in glass demijohns for several months before it was bottled. In the cellar, the bottles begin maturation on the lees for two years or longer before they are disgorged.
