Staff Wine Review – GoodCheapBooze.com
Not as cloyingly sweet as you might think. Refreshing, very upfront strawberry flavors and aromas with clean with lively bubbles that don’t fade quickly. A good choice for those who do not care for dry sparklers. But, not too sweet. If you enjoy strawberry daiquiris, this would be fine for you.
