Appearance: Light straw in colour.
Nose: Leesy, apple bouquet with a note of white blossoms.
Palate: Medium-bodied, crisply dry with lemon and green apple flavours. Finishes on a note of green nuts - easy drinking.
Quality: Outstanding. 90 points. Drink now or hold five years for a more mature (gout anglaise) flavour profile. An excellent first sparkling wine from Red Rooster.
Food Pairing: Linguini with clams and scallops, strawberry soufflé with freshly sliced strawberries, salmon with sage butter sauce, kale and persimmon salad with pecan vinaigrette, and beer-battered cod sandwich with garlic aioli.
