This was the first thing I tried in the Effervescence master class! Light, simple and elegant. Incredibly fresh and a smidge tropical! Toasty finish. I’d like to walk around parties drinking this out of the bottle. Someday...

Incredibly inputs. Gorgeous Flint, mineral-driven flavors with green apple, lemon and hazelnut. Beautiful wine with great character.

Had this at lunch today. Love it. Been a bit since I've had it but it always delivers. Every. Time.

All at once rich, delicate, precise, intense. Lemon curd and crisp apple, grilled oyster shell and crushed chalk, almond milk. Fine mousse with balanced minerality, pure expressive fruit, integrated acid, and impressive width and length. Something to say for the big houses.
