"Aromas of yellow apple and a yeasty whiff of bread crust lead the nose on this lightly sparkling, bottle-fermented wine. The aromas carry over to the crisp straightforward palate along with lime, a hint of almond and racy acidity."

"This undergoes a second fermentation in bottle that leaves a slight sediment at the bottom. Aromas recall delicate white flower, green apple, citrus and bread crust. The vibrant palate offers ripe Bartlett pear, nectarine and candied ginger accompanied by a creamy perlage. It's balanced with lively acidity."
