Clear straw green color. Aromas and flavors of yellow apple, melon, and dried citrus with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, breezy finish that shows notes of Meyer lemon custard and fruit salad with no oak flavor. A very refreshing and mouthwatering bubbly that will be versatile.

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Brut is a term that defines dryness levels in sparkling wines; it is most famously used for Champagne, but it is a common term used around the world for most sparkers.

While Brut means "dry" for all intents and purposes, it can actually be off-dry or even lightly sweet. The definition of Brut for Champagne is between 0-12 grams of residual sugar, so Brut actually describes a range of sensations.

No matter how dry a Brut sparkling wine actually is in technical terms, it is generally dry enough to serve at the dinner table with most foods.
