Tasting Notes:

A bright, fresh and invigorating sparkling made from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes. The wine was barrel fermented and aged for 7 months on lees before secondary fermentation and maturation in the bottle for a further 21 months. Citrus, green apple and subtle underlying creamy notes on the nose. The citrus and apple notes carry through, while the creamy yeast tones add length to the palate. The life and zest of the mousse adds a real vibrancy and freshness to the palate. Time in the cellar will build complexity and interest. Drink now and over the next 5-6 years.
