An enticing fragrance of white-fleshed fruits with floral notes on the nose. A refreshing taste of grapefruit, peach and pineapple on the palate, followed by layers of toasty aromas and a mouth-watering light saltiness. A firm and rich mousse, excellently structured and with the zest ensuring a long finish. The Furmint grapes give it a minerality and real crispness, which is perfectly complemented by the elegance so characteristic of Chardonnay. Aged on the lees for over two years, but its remarkable freshness shows further potential for bottle ageing, making it better with each passing day. The magnum bottle allows for the development of an even more complex structure, making this the perfect choice for true connoisseurs.
Food Pairing Recommendation
This dry sparkling wine is great on its own, allowing you to fully appreciate its taste. 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.
