Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, 2018 vintage, with a best before date of August 2041. Poured into a De Cam stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slow gusher upon popping the cork, but it poured a nice hazy golden straw yellow colour with a slightly more than one finger pillowy fluffy white head that had good retention, while leaving only some sparse lacing.
Aroma: Tart, green apple, apple skin, oak, lemon zest, peach, hay and funk.
Taste: Moderately sour, tart, green apple, apple skin, oak, lemon, citrus sherbet, funk, with light stone fruit notes.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable and easy to drink with a good balance of fruit, sour and funk.
