Extremely fine and well balanced; freshness is the key here. Lemon curd and spice with a yeasty richness overlays fresh citrus and pear. The mid palate has a creamy centre which wraps around a fine-boned and zesty acidity giving a refreshing yet moreish finish. By disgorging right before the wine is to be consumed, the freshness of the aged sparkling wine is maintained.
