Intro: A 375ml bottle with a best before date of 4th July 2024. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy copper amber colour with a one finger light tanned head that dissipated quickly but left behind some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Funk, tart, vinous, grape, green apple, vinegar and a touch of oak.
Taste: Sour, tart, funk, oak, vinegar and lemon with light apple skin, light grape, and light red sour berries.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: The Spontan base comes through strongly but the fruit element, in this case red grape, was rather muted in comparison.
