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.
Vibrant! Frivolous! And Oo-Lah-Lah......this "vin vivant” (lively wine) is a crisp and fruity sparkling winewith low alcohol and the taste of fresh green apples and pears.
