A multi-award-winning méthode traditionnelle sparkling wine from the celebrated Kreinbacher Estate.
Attractive fragrance of green apples and citrus with yeasty and floral notes on the nose. The palate has refreshing grapefruit, peach and pineapple, followed by layers of nutty, biscuity flavours and a hint of salt. A firm and persistent mousse, excellent structure and a long, honeyed finish. The Furmint grapes lend the wine a mineral and crisp character, which is beautifully complemented by the elegance of the Chardonnay. This is a wine with real depth and character, perfect to transform any occasion into a special event.
This dry sparkling wine is great to drink on its own when celebrating special moments. It goes well with caviar, smoked salmon and oysters. Its creamy fruitiness makes a delicious pairing for soft cheese and mascarpone, as well as crêpes and strawberry sponge cakes.
Serve chilled at 8-11°C and consume at a temperature of 10-11°C
