Light gold. Aromas of nectarine, pear and lemon curd, with subtle ginger, lees and floral accents. Sappy orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity and pick up spiciness and a chalky nuance with air. Powerful yet lithe and focused, finishing with very good clarity and length and lingering spiciness.

Subtle flavors of pear and white cherry are underscored by smoke, bread dough and spice notes in this balanced bubbly, which ends with a citrusy finish. Disgorged March 2013. Drink now. 270,000 cases made.
