Winemaker's Notes

This wine presents with a terrific sparkling pale yellow, speared by streaks of green. Opulent aromas of green lime, lemon rind and citrus dominate with a subtle hint of fennel. Flavors of green lime continue with a zippy crisp approach, a youthful fresh vibrance, and a lasting impression. A bright, crisp and vibrant wine.

This wine was a great find and a delight. Slightly tart and just the right amount of citrus, without being either too sweet or too dry, this SB really delivers. Pretty color without being "showy". Well balanced and a medium bodied SB, this paired well with sharp cheese, and also fruit. In fact, I dropped some fresh peach slices and cherries in my glass to make an extra special treat. :) Try this wine, I don't think you'll be disapointed!
