Babylonstoren Sprankel 2013

Babylonstoren Sprankel 2013

Colour: Straw yellow with slight green tinge. Bouquet: Golden Delicious apple, green lollipops, tropical tones as well as gentle biscuit and brioche flavours from the maturation on the lees. Taste:  Fresh and well balanced with a very fine mousse and soft acidity to balance the almond skin and passion fruit tones. Delicious lime and grapefruit with beautiful minerality and long finish.

Sprankel goes really well with cheese, fruit, salmon, shellfish and caviar. The smoothness of this sparkling wine also works beautifully with poultry and seafood dishes with light buttery sauces. Chilled, 10–15°C (50–59°F).
