Reviewed this one last year, but this is the 2010 edition and seems to be better rated. Also, we are KWB fans, so why not ? Looks like the oranges are better blended this year with the yeast that gives out hints of vanilla and some dry grapes sweetness. A little sourness in the flavours with the grapes, a dry middle and some light yeast lingering adding some nuttiness. We would have to say that this is better balanced than last year’s version. Good for the price !

After popping the cork, a big orange aroma kicks in. The Sparkling smells quite close to orange juice. After a while, the orange notes disappear, and mild alcohol, yeast and citrus is all that is left. Not much taste as well. Light dryness with a touch of yeast in the finish. Hints of sourness. Overall, nothing offensive, but lacking much flavours, so not worth the price (as KWV wines are quite good for the price).
