Elegant, complex, silky.
The 2007 is made from equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It was aged on lees for seven years to enhance complexity then disgorged prior to release in March 2015.
Blue Mountain is renowned for elegant and elaborate bubbles - this one is a stand out. The aromas here are hazelnuts, warm apple turnovers lemon and pear with a hint of summer berries. It has a solid autolytic character from its time on lees and flavours of juicy citrus, toasted nuts and creamy fruit. It has beautiful weight and focus with a tiny bead as well as a long and powerful finish lifted with mouthwatering acidity.
