Tasting Notes

Laura Evans, our resident Master of Wine

This beautiful wine is very pale straw in colour with a fine mousse from 5 years lees ageing.

It has a complex nose with very many nuances: freshly baked pastries married with pink grapefruit and apple strudel. There is a wonderful concentration of creamy fruit on the palate; yeasty, bready notes giving way to the signature long and smooth Squerryes finish.

The acidity works well with dishes prepared with a creamy sauce or freshly shucked, meaty, creamy oysters, such as a Colchester or Fal
