TASTING NOTE

 

Pale golden in colour, with green hues and a delicate mousse. The nose shows lots of ripe, luscious fruit; red apple, pear and white peach. On the palate, the fruit is vibrant and juicy, with candied citrus, starfruit and lemon sherbet alongside green apple, nectarine and hints of white flowers. With no dosage added, the wine expresses lots of bright fruit notes and a crisp freshness. On the finish the wine develops notes of patisserie and baked almonds, leading to a long, elegant finish.

VINTAGE REPORT

From a watershed vintage. An early bud burst was followed by good weather through until the end of June resulting in successful flowering. Much needed rain in August helped compensate for the dry conditions earlier in the year. This ensured a fruitful and early harvest which was completed by 7th October.
