Overview

Cool climate classic Kreglinger, a very captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl beads that provide both fine and lively texture to a crisp clean mouth feel.

Freshly baked apple pastries melt in your mouth. The addition of our liqueur de dosage at disgorgement has added further richness and complexity to the already multi-layered palate.

The finish is long and elegant with mineral quartz, nori and all with the maritime depth of seaside flavours, and a palate that leads to a crisp, dry, lingering finish.

Expert Reviews

A complex style searching for developed toasty character and finding it; there is an element of bruised apple to contrast the lemony fruit; the palate is fine and the mousse creamy; long and savoury to conclude. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

The ‘body’ colour of a fine champagne diamond, polished to sparkle and flash with lots of ‘fire’, delicately encased with strands of very fine and persistent string of pearls bead.

Aroma

Classic Kreglinger vintage brut aromas, with seamless depth and elegance, all the hallmarks of fine cool maritime climate sparkling.

The subtle hints of biscuity bakers yeast, honey, nougat, and layers of spice, fine quartz mineral perfume talc, integrated and balanced by the subtle tones of cashews, nori seaweed and sea side aromas.

Palate

Cool climate classic Kreglinger, a very captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl beads that provide both fine and lively texture to a crisp clean mouth feel.
