Mildiani Traditional Method Brut Reserve 2015, Blanc de Blanc
French méthod traditionnelle vintage sparkling
Made from the outstanding 2015 vintage of Georgian indigenous grape variety Mtsvane Kakhuri, the wine has been first aged in oak barrels before bottle aging on lees for further four years. This beautiful sparkling wine made using French méthod traditionnelle is complex yet delicate with floral aromas and flavours of ripe peach, melon, apple, brioche, vanilla and toast, with pleasant acidity and minerality. The wine has a complex long finish and can be enjoyed as an aperitif or matched with variety of cuisines. We particularly like it with oysters.
