This is an interesting and unique wine, with barrel smoke adding layers of complexity, without overwhelming vanilla or other effects from the wood.
All in all, a pleasant, mild sparkling aperitif, a surprise to me, for this grape.
This is a good wine for the dollar, with good acidity balancing a touch of sweetness.
The wine is hedonistically rich without losing it's fresh acidity.
Apricot and honey linger, with enough acid to balance the sweetness.
