Taylors Estate strikes again with another affordable wine that punches above it's price point. Made the same way as Champagne, it is a light, crisp, vivacious style of fizz that shows bright aromas of citrus, stone fruits, toffee apples and buttered toast on the tempting nose, whilst the palate is light and creamy, with a nice zip of citrusy flavours, licks of peach and toast, a fine bubble, and a bright, crisp finish. It's made for drinking over the short-term, and would be great with some prawn kebabs.
Appearance: At release, the wine is a pale yellow colour.
Nose: At release, the wine displays clean citrus/lemon fragrances along with lifted floral blossom, toffee almonds, creme brulee and underlying hints of vanilla and rose water.
Palate: Initially the wine displays fresh citrus zest and stone fruit with a subtle honeyed toast and poached pear richness. The mid-palate then showcases a creamy softness, layered with vanilla and sweet spice. Overall, the wine is well-balanced with a fine, delicate mousse and finishes with clean and crisp, refreshing acid. Nuances of crème brûlée, quince, and a tingling minerality accompany the finish.
Cellaring: This wine is crafted for immediate enjoyment but will also reward careful short-term cellaring.
