Espumante 30 meses
Sur Lie
Nature Rosé
NV | 750ml

Casa Valduga Sur Lie is a sparkling wine in its crude form, without dégorgement and consequently without the dosage of post-dégorgement expedition liqueur. 
Because it does not go through this refining, the yeast autolysis occurs while the bottle remains closed. This is the great differential of this specimen, which continues aging indefinitely and the decision to interrupt this process is unique and exclusively yours, who will decide the maturation time of the drink, to appreciate it according to your preference.

Appearance: Salmon pink color with characteristic hazy appearance.

Bouquet: Fine and broadly complex aroma, marked by notes of almonds and toasted bread acquired during the 30 months of aging, combined in an aromatic base of red fruits.

Palate: Dry and unctuous. The complete absence of added sugars is perfectly compensated by the presence of yeast that brings creaminess and balance to the freshness of the acidity. The aftertaste is very fine and long, persisting nuances of almonds, coming from the evolution of the sparkling wine.

Lot 1 - limited to 9,000 bottles.
The technique known by the name sur lie allows the drink to remain in constant evolution, in the presence of yeast, until the bottle is opened, when the sparkling wine reaches its fullness. 
Ideal for those seeking a distinct and unique sensory experience.
