Tasting note: This bubbly comes in a lemon-yellow color of medium, slightly light intensity, with a few green hues. It looks youthful rather than matured. This impression of freshness is confirmed on the nose where fresh primary fruit and floral characters dominate. Lime, paddock flowers, a touch of grape fruit and grapes. This is pure expression of fruit just elegantly complemented by a touch of buttery creaminess giving it an appetizing feel. The palate is lively and crispy, with solid acidity dominating and giving an overall dry feel. The crispy texture pairs well with the fruity citrus flavors, and some acidic pineapple tones. Lively bubbles, a little sharp reinforcing the freshness. But as the mouthfeel develops on the palate, the coating oily texture takes more control to finish on delicate buttery notes and a silky texture.
