Straw yellow colour with green reflections. Small, fine and slowly rising bubble - consistent - 18 months again on the lees.
Fresh,golden apple aromas, pears, hay and tin with hint of peach.
Creamy texture entrance in the mouth with a frech acidic short finish. Has a nicely buried backbone of acidity and tannin. Nothing is obstrusive, everything is in graceful balance, leaving an ultimate impression of both muscle and flesh.
Good as an aperitive or with cake deserts. Apple pie for example. Smoked salmon sandwiches, prawns, lobsters, chocolate mousse with strawberries
