Winery Notes:
Straw color, transparent and very pale, glints of brassy green. It pours up with a very brief froth and leaves random bubbles behind, but it's petillant, not truly sparkling. Simple, delicate white-fruit aromas focus on a hint of musky melon; light carbonation adds a prickle to the crisp, dry flavor. Simple, sufficient acidity for balance, light in alcohol at just 9 percent, very refreshing. Sealed with a Stelvin-type metal screwcap to retain its clean, fresh character and banish cork taint. Top value for the price - a fine everyday quaff for summer sipping.

Low price and low alcohol.
