Hungaria Grande Cuvee Brut NV

Hungaria GC.jpgAs the name implies, the Hungaria Grande Cuvee Brut hails from Hungary. It makes a great pick to have on hand for a special celebration or an impromptu dinner party! It is a friendly sparkling wine with aromas and flavours of apples, citrus peel, pear and brioche. The bubbles are fine and vigorous. It is a longtime favourite because it over delivers in every way!
