Redbank Emily Chardonnay Pinot Noir Brut Cuvee
Good white creamy mousse with pale gold base wine colour and very fine bead showing good persistence. The nose displays aromas of grapefruit, citrus, lees and light toast. Clean and crisp with an almost creamy like texture the palate displays flavours of citrus and lees followed by some light cashew and toast characters. Clean crisp finish with aftertaste of citrus, cashew and light toast.

The mousse is relatively short lived and the fine bead lacks persistence. Straw coloured base wine, with little nose. Light notes of yeast lees and biscuit. The palate is fuller than the nose suggests with creamy texture, followed by some yeast lees and nut flavours. Clean finish. Light aftertaste of yeast lees and biscuit. A Commercial style.
