Moorilla Muse Extra Brut 2017

Sourced from the well established and renowned St Matthias vineyard, overlooking the River Tamar (kanamaluka) in northern Tasmania. Note, bottle image is of the 2016, but nothing else has changed (you can still purchase the 2016 from the Moorilla website.)

Moorilla, Muse Extra Brut, Tasmania, 2017

muse-extrabrut

Pale lemon to straw hue. Small galaxy of tight bubbles. Light straw and hay bale dryness on the nose with plenty of apple flesh, flaky pastry, white blossom, chalk and easy stone fruit fuzz. Elegant mousse with instant appeal. Straight lines wound with Tasmanian tension and length. Dry, aperitif style with nearly masochistic acidity. Good.

RRP: $45
Alc: 11.7%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
