Bright gold color topped by a rim of silver fizz; large, splooshing bubbles. Initial nosing passes detect a fine, narrow, very tart green apple bouquet; later sniffings pick up notes of honey wheat bread and apple peel. Palate entry is light, gently effervescent and tart; midpalate stage is agile on the tongue, acceptably sour (but not biting) and refreshing. Finish is sour, apple-like and ethereal. Luscious. Serve well chilled (between 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit).
