Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, with a neck label of 2017-2018, and a best before date of 21st December 2027. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear golden orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly to a small lasting collar around the glass, while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Apple peel, yeast, doughy, green apple, white grape, vinous, oak, with some light funky notes.
Taste: Sour, tart, white grape, vinous, oak, straw, funky, apricot, with some light pear and citrusy grapefruit and lemon notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Excellent, super enjoyable. The aroma was perfect, followed by great flavours, complexity, lots of fruit, and vinous, balanced with oak and funk. Looks like I’ll need more for my cellar.
