Pale pink with a salmon hue and a delicate bead, lighter towards the edge.
Strawberries and cream up front, before a suggestion of fennel and rose petals over a basket of summer red fruits, from cherries to Satsuma plum and raspberry. As the wine warms, there is a distinct aroma of freshly baked pastry.
Enjoy up to 8 years from vintage with canapés, risotto, oven baked salmon or a creamy brie.
Dry to taste, a delicate effervescence on the front palate conveys red fruits and raspberry liquorice, with a creamy mousse and biscuity sweetness fleshing out the middle. An energetic acidity binds everything together, finishing long, clean and refreshing.
