Nova 7 White Blend - “In the glass, a pale coral pink with a bright peach hue. On the nose, successions of floral notes – rose petals and water lilies – intermingle with tropical hints of fresh papaya and litchi fruit. On the palate, suggestions of ripe mango and fresh apricots are brightened by crisp and energetic undertones, revealing the trademark electricity unique to our cool climate.”
BBNV Sparkling - “In the glass, a pale golden colour with a straw hue. On the nose, the wine displays suggestions of smoke and lemon rind with strong sea minerals undertones. The palate is luscious but with good intensity and vibrancy. Hints of green apples and dried cranberries are magnified by the wine’s bright structure, unfolding in a lengthy mineral finish.”
