Backsberg, Brut 2016, Paarl, South Africa
Tasting Note: An understated Kosher sparkling wine from South Africa to finish an evening with rather than begin one.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a muted nose of green apple.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sparkling brut delivers muted, green-fruit flavors supported by medium acidity.
A straightforward, simple, Kosher sparkling wine.
Bottle Note: This Kosher for Passover wine has been made under the strict supervision of the Cape Town Beth Din and the OU of the United States. Mevushal.
