Review and Tasting

Sampled on 14/08/2012

Appearance

Clear, pale golden with small persistent bubbles.

Aroma

Well done toast and toasted almonds with green apple, nougat and developed yeasty notes which unusually, present as faint notes of rare bloody steak and mushrooms.

Taste

Quite bright with zingy citrus – not the rounded champagne the nose might suggest but intensely classy and refreshing.

Aftertaste

Unripe fruit, tart lemony citrus zesty, lemon curd finish. Fades with the tang lemon sherbet.
