Wine Review: The Anna Brut Reserva is a nice straw color in the glass with a good helping of bubbles. The nose is inviting with notes of brioche, banana cream, and vanilla. The first sip is a good way to get accustomed to the mouth-filling medium-sized bubbles. The banana and vanilla notes continue onto the palate alongside custard and hints of clove. The finish has some weight and lingers for a bit. This would do just fine on its own but would pair especially well with Asian inspired Salmon. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Brilliant yellow color with green reflections. Fine, persistent bubbles forming continuous beads. On the nose, it displays citrusy and tropical fruit notes along with more complex aging aromas (toast, brioche) that enrich the range of aromas. On the palate, it is creamy, wide and long lasting. These characteristics make it highly versatile A good ally for accompanying a menu from start to finish. Pair with starters, sauteed vegetables, fish, seafood, and desserts.
