Karanika Brut Nature

"Full of aromatic complexity with citrus fruits and autolysing aromas to complement the background. Grapefruit, lemon and hints of peach, supplemented with dough and hazelnut. Rich, refreshing in the mouth with the rind of foaming to give a creamy texture. The luscious acidity makes grapefruit and lemon tickle the palate and stay in the refreshing, impressive long-lasting aftertaste."
