TASTING NOTES

BELLISSIMO !

Kick up you heels with a glass or two of our  2018 Cuvée Janine ! Invitingly rock melon in colour, this all County bubbly is primed to entertain with aromas of red currant, pomegranate, cranberry and subtle floral notes. It dances its way to flavoursome peach, hints of apricot, wild strawberry bathed with red apple skin. Serve well chilled for a shock of refreshment.
