Tasting Notes

An enticing fragrance of white-fleshed fruits with floral notes on the nose. On the palate, you are greeted by the refreshing taste of grapefruit, peach and pineapple, followed by layers of nutty aromas and a mouth-watering light saltiness. A firm and rich mousse, excellently structured with a lasting aftertaste. The Furmint grapes give it a minerality and real crispness, which is perfectly complemented by the elegance so characteristic of Chardonnay. This is a sparkling wine with real depth and character, perfect to turn any occasion into a special event.

Food Pairing Recommendation

This dry sparkling wine great on its own, ideal to celebrate special occasions in your life. It also goes very 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.
