Colour: Pale Rosé.
Aroma: Crisp red apple delights on the nose with cranberry & red cherries from the Pinot Noir component.
Flavour: A fresh, light sparkling wine with a yeasty follow-through on the palate. It has a fine mousse and a light creamy aftertaste.

Perfect for an aperitif or a celebratory event, but can be enjoyed with any occasion. Great with sushi, smoked salmon, fresh oysters and other seafood.
