Clear in appearance. Medium gold in colour. Tight beading and fine lacing. Soft, creamy nose: plenty of red apple along with richer notes of baking spices and brioche. Lightly carbonated with juicy, tart apple flesh and a fine structure that is reminiscent of white wines from the region. Finishing clean, with an intense dryness and a long tail of flavour.

RRP: $105 (for a case of 24)
Alc: 6% (330mls)
Rating: 17.75/20 (91/100)
