Take a break from a swampy summer day with a glass of this golden-hued bubbly. Aromas of strawberry, toasted hazelnuts and baked bread open to flavors of red berries and peaches. On the palate, a creamy texture, lots of tiny bubbles and solid acidity complement the berry flavors. The crisp, dry finish lingers on the tongue with an aftertaste of sweet berries.
