Gold in colour with fine mousse and a medium+ intense nose.

Positives: I just love this sparkler, which is one of my top 10 in this category. The clearance price even makes it more attractive. This easy drinking creamy sparkling wine serves up lemon, apple, biscotti, lemon curd, pink grapefruit, yeast, limestone and a touch of rosemary.

Negatives: None

Drink now on its own or pair it with anything, but if you need something, I paired it with Beausoleil cocktail oysters and it was heavenly.

Tasted: 9 Dec 12

Mineral, biscuit, apple and lemon aromas. Refreshingly crisp citrus finish. Incredible value.
