Apparently some version of this have a bit more sweetness than others.  This bottle had a hint of sweetness but not overt or cloying.  It was absolutely delicious.  Served to a group on a warm summer evening, it was a star.  Salmon pink in color.  There is a nice mousse with a lot of tiny bubbles.  The nose has nice strawberry fruit along with a bit of burnt orange peel in the background.  On the palate, citrus comes out first followed by nice strawberries.  There is a nice depth and complexity here.  Just that hint of sweetness which combined with the acidity is very refreshing.  Nice finish.  This would work with a wide variety of food.  It probably doesn't improve but should evolve and mature for a decade.  Fantastic.
