Bright salmon orange color. Aromas and flavors of compressed watermelon, ripe guava, roasted red pepper, and pomegranate husk with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, interesting, medium-length finish imparting shades of mango lassi, green peppercorns, and taro custard with a suggestion of oak flavor. A fruity sparkling pleaser for the Rose All Day type.

Demi Sec

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Demi-Sec, literally "half-dry" is a term used in Champagne. Although called half-dry, a demi-sec Champagne is medium sweet, as it is legally defined as having between 33 to 50 grams of residual sugar. Thus a demi-sec is too sweet for the dinner table, but works well with pastries and cakes.

Once popular, it has declined in sales, as consumers prefer drier Champagnes.
