Style : A creamy semi-sweet fruity sparkling wine. Vinification : Artificial injection of carbon dioxide into the wine takes place. The wine and the syrup are chilled and the carbon dioxide is administered through a porus "candle". This then dissolves in the wine. It is stored in pressure resistant tanks, filtered and bottled under pressure. R/S 36.0 g/l
