Blue Pyrenees Estate, Brut, Pyrenees, Macedon, 2019
Pale lemon with fine beading and easy lacing. Rich and comforting nose with cherry Danish, panettone yeasty spiced aromas. Some smoked meat and shaved truffle richness with lemon sherbet citrus. Broad and a little coarse across the palate before moving to a rounded, easy yet balanced aperitif style with fine acidity. Well judged dark autolytic characters enlivened with fresh tart citrus.
