A brilliantly shimmering golden yellow in colour. The bubbles are incredibly fine, elegant and long-lasting. The bouquet reveals aromas of oranges, lemongrass, jasmine, honeysuckle and kumquats, complemented by cream candy, brioche and roasted almond. The palate is dry, due to its vital fruit acidity and is wonderfully fresh and lively. The finale becomes more and more complex with hints of white chocolate and almond notes.

Oliver Zeter was born into a family of wine importers, and at first that's what he did too. But a trip to South Africa saw Oliver fall in love with the elegance and vivacity of Sauvignon Blanc and with the role of winemaker. He returned to the Pfalz and persuaded his cousins to lend him 4 hectares of vineyards, and so his estate began. There he has planted Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier (he likes to “swim against the current”), Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. Right from the get-go in 2007, he has won awards. His aim is to produce wines that 'dance the tightrope between the styles of the New and Old Worlds'. The drinking bear that adorns the label comes from the quill of a well known Pfalz artist named Otto Dill, a friend of Oliver’s great grandfather Walter Baer. On one occasion in 1933 Walter was unable to meet his friends for a regular 'glass of wine or two' and the artist sent the sketch on a postcard to his friend Walter the 'bear', and the postcard was signed by all the friends present that day.
