Reviews

The Wine front – Gary Walsh Aug 2019

I’m just saying right now, that for drinking pleasure, I’d rather have this in my glass than just about any NV Champagne.

Light perfume, almond, ripe lemon and some rind. It’s chalky, has enough fruit to give body and pleasure, but it’s also saline and clean, very long and seemingly dry and crunchy on the finish. Is that a little Japanese ginger in the aftertaste?

Brilliant wine.

Get into it.
