    April 3, 2016 - Strawberry, yeast and marshmallow. Medium bead with flavors of roasted apple, yeast and almond. Drinkable, pleasant even, if just a bit past peak and heading downhill if this bottle is representative.

    March 22, 2016 - olor salmón con irisaciones rojizas y una constante burbuja fina que va formando una gran corona interior. En nariz destacan los frutillos rojos (grosellas) toques de cítricos (pomelo rojo), algo de palote y caramelo de varias frutas rojas y cítricas, ligeras sensaciones frescas de levaduras, mucha frescura gracias a unos agradables toques de hierbas del monte (tomillo y romero). En boca tiene una fresca y agradable entrada, suave recorrido con un carbónico bien expresivo, sabroso, toques cítricos y frutillos rojos, buena acidez, toques amargosos intensos que intensifican la fruta y las notas balsámicas, buena persistencia. Final largo, postgusto de frutos cítricos y retronasal de levaduras frescas.

    July 25, 2015 - It's good especially for the price but not very complex and not the full mouthfeel I want from a great sparkling wine.

    May 11, 2015 - a lovely alternative to the typical sparkler. Strawberry and kiwi fruit, dry and more depth and complexity than most, especially at this price point.
