Vinification: Kobal Sparkling wines are made from perfectly ripe grapes shaped by both old school and modern technological approaches in the cellar. Maceration period of just 4 hours allows the grapes to “bleed”. It is followed by cold fermentation to protect primary varietal aromas. Secondary fermentation begins directly from the grape juice sealed in a special tank. Pressure and effervescence are maintained till the end of fermentation. This approach allows the winemaker to produce fresh, varietal focused, yet sophisticated sparkling wine.

Tasting Notes: This wine is ready to drink immediately after bottling. It is not meant to be aged but will maintain its freshness for at least a year in a bottle. The bouquet is reminiscent of fresh raspberries and strawberries. Pleasant acidity and minerality on the palate are highlighted by the tiny playful bubbles.

Serve at 4C as an aperitif, or with lobster and shrimp dishes or fruit, especially strawberries!
