Tasting Note:

This sparkling wine features bright citrus notes, cooking apples and elderflower on the nose, along with caressing, gentle lees and toasted elements. Crisp and tight on the palate with high acidity and a touch of salinity on the finish. Aeration leads to suggestions of red apple skin, barley and white peaches. 2012 sees a slightly higher dosage level than usual at around 11g/l to aid roundness and texture. The wine spent 36 months on the lees and further 6 months under cork prior to release.
