Colour: nice - medium gold with the slight green turning richer.
Nose: rich cheese with butter and a shade of citrus honey.
Palate: fresh and lively with great mousse. It's compelling and very more-ish. The mouth-feel is fantastc. Green apples, slight cheese & mushrooms but the latter on the edges. The mid-palate is mostly fruit driven. Long on the finish and the complexities of age are just beginning to come through and, importantly, this is a fun wine!
I would happily drink it breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Tasted 5/9/05 at Naughton. With bacon butties.
