Danebury’s Sparkling Cossack is predominantly made from Auxerrois Blanc (95%), with a small portion of Pinot Gris (5%). Auxerrois is a French varietal that is most notably grown in Alsace.
An elegant floral charm echoes the delicate, pale colour of this wine. There is a fresh, clean nose of crisp orchard fruit, floral tones and light minerality.
To taste, crisp, dry citrus flavours up front soon meld into ripe pear and sweeter white peach flavours, ending on a tangy, green zesty citrus note.
Notes of tropical fruit keep the Cossack fruit-focussed. This wine would appeal to those that like their fizz light, elegant and refreshing.
