Pale lemon with a lime hue.
Hints of lemon, with delicate secondary characters of brioche and oyster shell.
A fine, creamy bead carries soft lemon citrus flavours combined with hints of toasty secondary notes. A long, complex palate with a dry finish makes this a wine with which to celebrate.

2012 was a cool year where red varieties struggled to ripen with any real consistency, but our white wines shone brightly. Five years on this wine is rewarding the vision to produce a high end sparkling wine from a unique region.
