Winemaker notes
Loaded with fresh floral and fruity aromas and flavors, this Riesling Sparkling wine is deliciously refreshing, complex and pleasing to both dry and sweet wine drinkers. Finished with just a bit of sweetness, this champagne is an elegant addition to special occasions, or try it with stir-fry or many light summer meals.
