Light straw in colour with glints of bright gold. Complex hints of acacia honey, peach and tart cherries combine for a very engaging nose. On the palate, a vibrant effervescence enhances an already lively wine with ample freshness, driven by citrus pink grapefruit and lime ﬂavours. The bitter citrus zest ﬂavours are powerful and superbly concentrated. The wine displays the combination of richness and tart tones that is typical of our cool climate and Benjamin Bridge’s terroir-driven wines. A ﬁne sparkling wine is perfect when enjoyed on its own but but to enjoy an inspired food pairing is to discover its true versatility.
