"Pale lemon in the glass with green tinges. Vibrant with initial herbaceous grassy nose which softens into gooseberry and tropical fruits once opened up a bit! Lots of crisp tropicals and citrus / limey acidity on the palate, juicy, gorgeously textured from a little barrel fermentation with a long dry finish.

This is the latest release sparkling cuvee from Calabria Family Wines. Lively sparkling with lifted Chardonnay aromas of lemon citrus and mango crème with balanced red currant characters of Pinot Noir. A creamy palate of underlying pineapple and papaya with dancing delicate bubbles, complemented by nougat flavours and a crisp finish. Serve chilled, simply on its own or with Canapés and soft white cheese. Also an enjoyable accompaniment to seafood; freshly shucked Oysters or grilled Salmon.

This is a medium bodied and easy drinking wine, showing the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon (82%) and the generosity of Merlot (18%). The fresh and pretty palate is juicy and salivating with red and blue fruits backed by milk chocolate and restrained vanilla oak. The fine, textured tannins provide length from the front to the back of the palate giving a long, satisfying finish. Drink now or cellar up to 2022.
Pairs well with slow roasted duck, with braised red cabbage and hazelnuts.
