ASSESSMENT

Mousse: The wine has a fine delicate bead which lasts well in the glass

Colour: A light straw colour
Aromas: A complex and complete sparkling with lovely brioche and freshly baked bread aromas. There are hints of yeasty notes along with creamy and nutty characters. This is all held together by fresh citrus notes.

Palate: The fine bead lifts the wine and enhances the grapefruit core. The extended lees contact provides a rich complexity which runs the length of the palate. The tight structure and fine acidity give drive and freshness to the wine, providing that perfect balance between flavour, complexity and lingering freshness.
