Earthy, cedar and blackberries on the nose. The palate has a lovely refreshing mousse with a hint of rich creaminess. Elegant with good length the wine has liquorice and black cherry flavours. The wine finishes clean and crisp inviting you to come back for more. This is the 2021 disgorgement. The wine spends 24 months on lees.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
