Straw green color. Inviting aromas and flavors of flamed candied orange, baked apple on Belgian waffle, walnut pastry, and sweet cream gelato with a satiny, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, cheery bay leaf, white pepper, and starfruit finish. A crispy everyday sparkler that envelops the palate with briochey warmth.

Brut

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.
