Straw color. Herbal aromas of blackberries, eucalyptus, peppermint, and marjoram with a satiny, crisp, spritzy, sweet light-to-medium body and a seamless, stimulating, breezy green apple and concord grape finish with no oak flavor. An herbal quaffer akin to sparkling shiraz.

Sparkling Flavored Wine

Flavored wine is a category of specialty sparkling wine products that have added flavors, colors and/or carbonated water. Examples run the gamut from watermelon-flavored sparkling Rose to pineapple-flavored California sparkling wine. These wines are typically sweet, light-hearted products meant for un-fussy enjoyment.
