Pours a nice creamy mousse, with a pretty pink-copper colour. It’s stylish, with delicate raspberry and strawberry flavors…there’s a hint of sweetness on the mid palate to add pleasure but finishes dry and crisp.

Nice copper hue, fine streams of bubbles. Aromas of peach, raspberry, cranberry, lots of stony minerality, and some toasty/biscuity aromas as well. Cherry, cranberry, and MacIntosh apple come out on the palate, along with a hint of smokiness and toasted almonds. Very lively, crisp, and refreshing. Good length, finishing with cranberry, raspberry, almond, and minerality.

Not complex yet elegant & easy drinking sparkling wine

Description: Light pink in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose and fine mousse. This wine features light yeast, raspberry, strawberry, cherry and Macintosh apple. Medium body with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Established winery making sparkling wine since 1877. Nice bottle to impress dinner quest.

Drink now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with Risotto with sun dried tomatoes and shaved parmesan.

Tasted: 26 July 2015
