Palate: slate & minerals form a dry wrap around a medium acid core. Tiny bubbles that are pinpricks of effervescence meander around your mouth with padded gloves.
Finish: creamy apple notes on the finish.
Overall: This was $18.99 at the local wine store. This Pongracz Brut sparkling wine comes from the Devon Valley in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It is a nice alternative to a more bubbles-forward bubbly. It has an understated class and a soft mouth feel that would be as appropriate with a main course as with a dessert. Cheesecake or a simple cheese plate would be a great after dinner pairing.
