Closure: Diam Cork

A buoyant creamy white mousse sits atop a straw coloured base that has pale gold edges and an exceptionally fine bead streaming through its core. Potent baked bread, yeast lees, citrus and brioche aromas flow through the nostrils followed by hints of cashew, dried honey and toast. Rich, full and enveloping on entry, the palate is engulfed with a creamy textured flavour profile of brioche, yeasty baked bread, dried honey, roasted cashew and a lingering oily toast like quality. Concentrated, powerful and mouth filling, citrusy like acidity lends freshness to the very long cashew laced finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 12.5%

Other Reviews…..
Rich oxidative and vinous old-school style of Champagne. Rich with toffee apples, lemon curd on toast, brioche rolls and butter. The palate is just on the edge of Brut, with red apple and baked blueberry flavours. Nothing overdone, nothing overripe, nothing overmature - pure, persistent quality. Delicious!

Very flinty, with straw and dried goat’s-cheese character to the dried apples, honeycomb and some bread dough. Medium to full body with a dense center-palate and creamy texture. Dried lemon and orange peel notes, together with spice, dust and ginger. Structured and phenolic. Drink or hold.
