Sourced from vines over 60 years old, this 100% Chardonnay is blend of two consecutive vintages and is aged on lees for at least 4 years. Buoyant and lacy, the mousse sits over a pale straw coloured base that has a fine stream of nibble bubbles flowing through it. Distinct yeast lees and baked bread aromas show notable depth out of the glass intermixing with dried honey, roasted almonds and brioche along the way. Rich, mouthfilling flavours of baked bread, yeast lees, citrus and grilled nut are fresh and focused yet also have a pleasing viscosity. Oily toast and brioche like characters are also present. Dry crisp finish with a long, rich gently creamed aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 12%
