This Methode Champenoise sparkling wine is Grenache (clone Noir), direct pressed, primary fermentation in stainless. Zero dosage. This wine is a limited release bottling of only 1092 bottles produced.
Notes: A bright and structured wine, with bright acidity and complex flavors. Pretty cherry and strawberry fruits as well as a touch of violets and spice with distinct herbs and baked goods due to the Champagne aging method. Highly recommended!
