Additional details



Now onwards, yet recommend to ideally drink in youth - perfect at the moment!


An ascent of (textbook) grenadine fruits – Avec raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and strawberry. Sans pomegranate. And the citrus - pink grapefruit / mandarin marmalade. And the florals/confiserie – scents of Anis de Flavigny Violet Pastiles or Violets of Toulouse; lily. Upon sitting – wafts of cherry jam, sorry confiture.


Inviting, exotic. Balanced, with an overt freshness - crispness up-front, and a delicate dosage imprint on finish. Relaxed acidity, friendly effervescence. Subtle mandarin and raspberry fruits impact immediately – over a flavour base of strawberry with pepper / Turkish Delight with pistachio. Stylistically light on its feet and sprightly … its ‘Champagne character’ teasingly revealed upon sitting. Impatience? A second glass immediately beckons.

Varietal Composition:
