Tasting notes
A brilliant yellow colour highlighted by flashes of gold. On the nose freshness and minerality subtly marry with notes of ripe citrus fruit. A crisp and tight attack is sustained by the creamy texture of the mousse whilst the freshness of the wine is perfectly complemented by flavours of citrus fruit and stone fruit culminating in a finish that is long and full of flavour.
Food pairings
Excellent at any time of day, or night, with shell fish, white meat, fish and cheese.
