Labelled as a Sekt.  Pale silvery gold/green in color.  There is a nice row of small bubbles at the rim of the glass.  The mousse dissipates rapidly.  The nose is a bit soapy with light green apples.  Its much more intense on the palate with tart green apples.  Pretty crisp, this would go well with a wide variety of foods.  The tart finish livens up the palate and entices the drinker to have another sip.  At under $20, this is a nice value in sparkling wine.  A bit less fruity and more tart than a Prosecco or a Cava in the same prices range.
