Here's what Rowen Jacobsen wrote about this varietal in his book, American Terroir":
"It's almost unfortunate that Heidrun's bubbly is automatically compared to Champagne, because the two are very different experiences. One epitomizes northern France and the flourishing of beauty, art and culture in a gray climate; the other is pure California seduction. Champagne tastes like winter in Paris; Heidrun Orange Blossom mead tastes like spring."
Brut dry, citrus floral flavor and aroma, with a mineral finish.
Serve with any dish that accommodates a refreshing chilled wine with floral/citrus notes, from the traditional Sunday brunch to spicy Thai and Indian cuisine.
