Prestige Cuvée Chardonnay Pinot Noir
The Altitude Prestige Cuvée is a traditional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend, the same blend used for Champagne, and was created using a selection of vintages to ensure premium quality and consistent style. Wine from previous vintages has been included to increase depth and complexity.
The elegant palate is enhanced by a fine, persistent bead and a crisp, clean finish. A perfect aperitif to get any party or rendezvous started.
