Description

Winemaker’s Comments

Colour: Bright, clear and sparkling with an enticing fresh, green tinge.

 

Bouquet: Fresh and vibrant with hints of green apple, guava and nettles with sweet melon in the background. Simultaneously herbaceous and tropical.

 

Taste: The initially-vibrant minerality and crisp acidity is enveloped by sweet, fruity flavours of gooseberry, melon and ripe apricot. Uncomplicated and quaffable but with a subtle complexity hinting at a serious side.

 

Ageing Potential: While crisp and delicate in its youth, more complex and subtle characters can be expected to emerge with further cellaring up to an age of about three years.

 

Food Pairing: Perfectly enjoyable on its own, but for an ideal match, pair it with green, leafy salads with roasted nuts, trout almandine, sole veronique and pastas with rocket pesto or even a traditional English fish and chips.
