Glistening golden hues showcase an effervescent mousse of delicate dancing bubbles that foreshadow the enchanting, extroverted personality of this wine.


A compelling bouquet seduces your senses. Alluring aromas of citrus fruits and tropical melons with hints of honey invite immediate interest. A fresh and forward introduction opens up to a more complex and compelling conversation over time in the glass.


Delicate, divine bubbles dance on the palate. A gorgeous blonde body slowly undresses layers of fetching fruit sensations that ultimately surrender to luscious lemon lime and vanilla undertones in a voluptuous finish that lingers like the gratifying kiss of a truly satisfied lover. A statuesque blonde worthy of a tryst.
