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.
The wait was rewarded with a very lovely wine that doesn't usually get any years behind it.
