10.5% alc/vol; Approx. 6 standard drinks
Lovely complex fruit aromas on the nose, with elements from all varietals in the field blend present. Plenty of acid and mouth filling flavours on the palate.
This is a fun wine with natural effervescence from the secondary ferment, providing spritzig on the palate. The wine is very moreish and very easy drinking in social situations.
