Golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of bruised peach, chicken dumpling, cream corn, and apricot with a round, crisp, spritzy, dryish medium body and an interesting, medium-length finish with touches of dried lemon and orange, sweet corn and apricot, and mixed nuts. Multidimensional earthy and nutty aromas and flavors balance the tart acidity and citrus fruit; try as a pairing with roast squash.

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.
