A very clear pale lemon colour which helps to highlight the elegant and persistent mousse.
Fresh, clean aromas of green apple, stonefruit and citrus with obvious bready and mineral notes. A real invitation to put the wine in your mouth.
A strong flavour ‘attack’ showing a vibrant marriage of fruit and yeast influences. The firm and fresh acidity provides balance and persistence of flavour through to a long clean finish.
Hand-picked from selected low-yielding vines. Early harvest to limit the aromatic fruit level and ‘trap’ the firm acidity necessary for this style.
