Perfect sparkling wine for Mimosas

Description: Light straw in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose and fine mousse. This simple sparkling wine features lime, honeydew melon and green apples. Medium to light body with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Notes: For the extra $1.50, Freixenet’s black label, Cordon Negro, reviewed on this site, is far more superior.

Drink now on its own or mix it with orange juice and have it with your eggs for breakfast.
