Review and Tasting
Sampled on 12/05/2012
Clear, straw yellow with golden highlights with fine bubbles.
Fresh fruit (apple, pear, and pineapple fruit with lemon citrus ) with dried herbal yeasty notes.
More apple, pear and pineapple fruit with zesty lemon bite and good raw almond buiscuityness.
Fabulously refreshing acidity with biscuit and lingering lemon zestyness.
