Pale gold/yellow in colour, light, limpid and crystalline, fizzing with thousands of bubbles. An open and expressive nose, with rich flavours of plump, ripe yellow stone fruit such as apricots or peaches or even dried fruit (almonds). From the first sip the palate is rich, rounded and powerful. It shows a lovely development with a soft freshness combined.
Wine Spectator: Refined and creamy, with delicate acidity that finds fine balance with the layers of poached apple and pear, lemon cake, ground ginger, smoke and almond cream flavors. Very elegant. Drink now through 2020. 28,000 cases made.
