Toad Hollow Risque French Sparkling Wine 750ML
"Toad Hollow Vineyards are from California, but the Toad Hollow Risqué is crafted in Limoux in the Languedoc, France using the Mauzac grape and imported to the US by Toad Hollow. Made with the Methode Ancestrale style, which differs from most Sparkling wines since there is no second fermentation. The wine is bottled before the first fermentation is complete, as the fermentation is completed in the bottle, the carbon dioxide being released by the sugar being turned into alcohol gives the wine much softer, less intense bubbles. A low alcohol content of 6%.
Light golden yellow, with decent bubbles. Some lemon and limes on the nose, floral and pretty. The Toad Hollow Risqué feels slippery in your mouth, it’s a little sweet, but just a touch. It tastes of apricots and pears, the bubbles are very soft, it is a very light and refreshing Sparkling wine.
A nice, tasty and unique aperitif, you probably won’t find two Methode Ancestrale wines on the store shelf. The Toad Hollow Risque is the perfect Sparkler for the times that you want a sensuous wine, but can do without the alcohol content. The perfect drink for after dinner or for before something Risqué."
