Wine brilliant lemon-straw color with a steady perlyazhem of thin streams of small bubbles.
An elegant full-bodied wine with a fruity taste underlined, hints of spices, dried fruit, toast and nuts, well-balanced bright acidity. The finish is long, refreshing.
Complex, multifaceted flavor of the wine is filled with subtle notes of white flowers, ripe fruit, wild shades of honey, spices and vanilla nuances of freshly baked bread and sweet rolls.
The wine can be consumed as an aperitif, combined with appetizers, salads, light meals, fish and poultry.
