Profile


TASTING NOTES

By nose: rising dough, orange marmalade and baked apple. By mouth: ripe red apple, mandarin orange and hazelnut. Focused and complex, this is a beautiful sparkling with crispy pomme frittes with sea salt and black pepper, truffle popcorn, avocado and baby shrimp salad, bacon and watercress sandwich, wild mushroom tart, spaghetti with cream, parmesan and crispy onions, roast duckling with citrus.


WINEMAKER NOTES

In blending this wine we chose Pinot Noir and Chardonnay lots that were a bit shy by nose with a touch of ’fruit forwardness’ resulting in a sparkling wine that shows wonderful complexity that is rich, nutty and toasty with a hint of fruit. The dosage for this wine is 6 mls Special LEX, 3 ml 2009 Rued Chardonnay.
