Description: Pink salmon colour with a medium intense nose and a fine mousse. This off-dry sparkling wine features strawberry, pink grapefruit, peach and pear. Medium body with good acidity and a fairly long length.
Interesting Note: Cool bottle. This wine usually comes out before Christmas.
Drink now or in the next 2 years on its own or pair it with asparagus salad topped with poached eggs.
