Clear, very pale golden with small persistent bubbles.
Delicate yeasty biscuit with brioche, honeysuckle and lemon meringue zestyness.
Dry, sharp acidity – under ripe apples cooking apples with biscuit, crème brûlée, hints of toasted almond and faint honey.
Acidity elegantly balanced by a slight honeyed sweetness in a long fresh finish.
