Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with green edges, bright and fresh with fine bead and excellent mousse.
The aroma opens with crab apple jelly, grapefruit and lime zest alongside jasmine florals and redcurrant fruit aromas. This is followed by complex autolytic characters of fresh biscuits.
Richer and more explosive than the nose suggests, the palate offers a strong impression of Pinot Noir through red fruits and savoury flavours, alongside orange rind and subtle spices. Generous weight and creamy texture complete the long, fine finish.
Be brave and experiment with shellfish. Try crab tortellini with bisque reduction and fines herbes (fines herbes is a mix of fresh parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil used in French cooking) or cold lobster salad with shiso leaf and yuzu aioli.
