Irvine MV Meslier Brut

Cracka Review

Over the years of producing Meslier and the small quantities harvested experience tells us that by blending over vintages hence the NV status on the label the flavours are enhanced. This release a blend of 50% 2006 and the other 50% being 2007 only confirms to us that this is the right way to proceed. The lovely light and lively nature of this wine is most apparent.

Colour: Very pale in colour with a lifted and light floral bouquet with a wonderful fine bead.

Palate: The crisp acid races across the palate while the natural fruit in the middle taste gives weight and flavour. Think of ripe Granny Smith apples as the descriptor and it becomes easy to understand the Meslier character. It is this lifted fruit character rather than developed yeastiness that is the key to the enjoyment of the style.

Quite dry even for a Brut style, but with excellent mid palate fruit and crisp tingly acid finish. Perfect as an aperitif. Very appealing as a fresh young wine over the years the Meslier Brut deepens in both colour and complexity giving further rewards.
