MORE INFORMATION:
The wine displays a pale straw colour typical of bubbly that has enjoyed the benefits of extended lees maturation. Tiny, pearl-string bubbles and fine mousse abound. Beautiful aromas of lavender honey, lime, crisp apple with freshly baked pastry, and toasted almonds on the nose. The palate is bright and zippy with vibrant acidity and a soft, creamy mouthfeel. Fresh apple appears again along with pears, confected lemon, and a long, rich, lingering after taste.

Rurale can be paired with smoked salmon, fennel roasted trout, or fresh oysters with a squeeze of lemon, salt, and pepper.
