This sparkling rosé has a lovely nose of red fruits including strawberry, pomegranate, and cherries with violet notes. Refreshing citrus aromas of grapefruit and lime on the palate, built around a tight structure and firm acidity. The elegance and refinement of the Pinot Noir is combined with the liveliness of Furmint and some added fruitiness from Kékfrankos, creating a delightful drink. With a creamy mousse and a long finish, this is an indulgent and easy-drinking choice, bringing a touch of luxury to any occasion.
This elegant sparkling rosé is great on its own and ideal to celebrate special occasions. It goes well with creamy risottos, smoked salmon and oysters, and its delicate fruitiness makes a delicious pairing for soft cheese and mascarpone, as well as crêpes and strawberry sponge cakes.
