This deliciously yeasty and cloudy wine represents a light sparkling Yellow Muscat. In the bouquet, the varietal characteristic is reflected in the aroma and flavor, which is reminiscent of lemon, citrus fruits and white flowers. However, since the ending fermentation is done with wild yeasts the varietal aroma combines with a yeasty, creamy nose and mouthfeel, and where light bubbles make for excitement in every tasting. The palate is exploding with bright tropical notes of pineappele, mandarin, mango, and star fruit. Just enjoy by the sun on a terrace or with some creamy dessert or fresh soft cheeses.
