Blue Pyrenees Estate, Brut, Pyrenees, Macedon, 2017

Pale straw/gold in the glass with very tight beading. Fresh lemon rind and lemon curd with plenty of apple skin, soft nougat, easy dough and whiffs of briny salinity. A tight and refined mousse, offering fine layers of bright fruit in a focused, linear palate.  Acidity lifts and pierces well and the chalky texture to close shows depth.

RRP: $28
Alc: 12.1%
Rating: 17.5/20 (91/100)
