Crisp and clean with citrus and biscuit notes. Fruity notes of green apple, Bartlett pear, lemon, and lime followed by complex aromas of baked almonds, yeast and toast.

 

Palate:

This youthful wine has a palate that matches its aromatics. Complexities of mineral notes along with green apple, crisp pear, citrus pith and biscuit flavours. The bubbly mousse lifts the fruit components on the palate with leesy notes and hints of oak. Subtle complexities of citrus zest, mineral flavours and toasted almonds follow. Our 2016 Blanc de Blanc showcases a backbone of acidity and bolstering balance, with a smooth, medium-long, refreshing finish.
