Avontuur Brut Rose NV

Aroma: It’s a cranberry and floral explosion on the nose, with a subtle citrus freshness coming through.
Flavour: A medium-bodied sparkling wine with minerality and a slight earthiness from the Pinot Noir Component. It has a fine mousse and crisp acidity on the finish which reminds one of citrus peel or ripe blood orange.

Perfect for a celebratory event, but can be enjoyed with any occasion. Great with sushi, smoked salmon, fresh oysters, other seafood or a farm breakfast.
