Quality, complexity & delicious to drink all at an amazing price. Score: 93/100.
Tasting Note: Straw in colour with fine mousse, good acidity, medium+ intense nose & a long length on the finish. This wine features: Baked apples, light yeast, brioche, green apples, kumquat, kiwi & honeycomb & limestone.
Interesting Point: In my opinion Pongrácz produces the best sparkling, in the traditional method, at an amazing price, bar none. Check out my review of their rosé sparkling wine. In addition, I love the shape of their bottles.
Pairings: Drink this now or in next 8-10 years on its own or pair it with red onion vinaigrette.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
