With a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir this sparkling wine has wonderful lifted notes of toasty brioche aromas enhanced by green fruits and zesty citrus characters. A palate of racy, balanced acidity, flavours of citrus, biscotti and green apple that compliment the slaty, minerality and soft creamy mousse. Simply serve chilled.
This is a serious style of sparkling with a straw, meringue bouquet, and a deep palate which betrays a hint of barrel ageing and packs a definite grip on the back palate. Its quite a powerful sparkling, and could easily handle hearty poultry appetisers. 92 points Gourmet Traveller Wines
