Totally subtle and captivating notions of strawberry and rhubarb, embedded in autolytic pastry notes promise pleasure. The palate is full of friendly fruit flavors: strawberries and red-cheeked apples. The dosage accentuates the fruit while autolysis rounds everything out. This is a joyful, whistle-clean and fruit-forward, pale sparkler that is totally enlivening.
