Description - Dry and youthful with a fine and creamy persistent mousse. This wine has an appealing salmon pink blush hue and displays delicate cherry and green apple fruit with floral hints well balanced with a soft yeasty body.
Michael’s tasting notes – fresh, young and dry rose which will improve over the next three years
Appearance - Very pale Peach with fine persistent bubbles
Nose - Fresh with a lovely yeasty, bready edge. It displays a crisp green apple fruit and vibrant white flower flavour with a hint of fresh red cherries.
Palate - Dry, with refreshing acidity and a delicate, fine, yet persistent mousse. A superb marriage between freshness and finesse, this wine displays complex crisp white peach and white cherry fruit notes perfectly balanced with creamy brioche roundness and a long elegant finish.
Conclusions - A fresh, inviting nose and a complex yet fine mousse. Drinking very well now, but has the potential to develop over the next three years.
