Fresh citrus, gooseberry, and peach. Zippy acidity, coarse bubbles, not a whole lot of autolytic characters.

Pronounced aromas of gooseberries, lemon tart, and fresh biscuits. High acidity, medium body, and a creamy mousse with flavors of lemon, lime, pear, and autolytic notes. A long finish.

Lightly effervescent. Slightly toasty but balanced with a good acidity. Very drinkable. Probably been cellared for quite a while.

Perfect finish. Just enough citrus on the nose and wonderfully dry throughout.
