Review and Tasting


Sampled on 17/08/2015

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden with fast moving small bubbles.

Aroma:

Apple pie and dried pineapple with yeasty notes, buttery croissant and acacia flowers.

Taste:

Well-balanced acidity, zesty lemon freshness, yeasty buttery biscuit and overripe pineapple.

Aftertaste:

Relatively short zesty lemon and de-hydrated pineapple finish.

Overall:

Beautifully presented in a very shapely bottle, on the palate this ‘branded’ sparkling wine is equally attractive, as its price. Lemon freshness, buttery bakery notes and pineapple feature throughout.
