As you pour the fine persistent bubbles into your flute - a summer glow, as luminous and sparkling as a sunrise fills the glass. The refined bubbles help to reinforce the sparkle in every sip. On the nose a soft first impression of fresh almonds and hazelnuts, that leads on to more tropical notes and hints of apricots and ripe citrus fruits. The palate has a dynamic character, a sign of longevity, expresses itself fully across your palate. The firm and subtle texture showcases dried exotic fruits, with hints of coconut enhanced by a touch of cedar wood. A substantial wine, balanced, lively packed with an eternal youthful personality, giving a persistent length to the finish. Chill and serve at 8-10°C.
