Chilled before drinking. Clear wheat straw color. Yeasty, bread dough aromas with whiffs of honeysuckle. Fresh, slightly creamy, a tad sweet (more than off dry) and with a vigorous effervescent mouthfeel, light to medium body and a 400- grit texture. Lemon, lime, apple and bread dough flavors. very fresh edgy acidity and a medium length fresh apple and yeasty finish. WOW, this was quite refreshing, inviting and festive. This wine came with a “take Out” dinner we purchased from the Undercurrent restaurant and didn’t drink with the dinner. It was surprisingly good and in the end we enjoyed it very much. If it hadn’t had the sweetness we would have been wildly enthusiastic. We called it a nice zesty sparkling blend.
