96 Points – Gourmet Traveller WINE (June 2020)

Charming fresh berry flavours contrast with delicately nutty yeast autolysis characters. An ethereal texture leads to a gently drying fnish. Impressive fzz.”

Gold Medal – Sommelier Wine Awards, (June 2020)
“Crunchy apple and pear, along with apricot, lime and lemon and notes of yoghurt from the unfltered lees. This would be a lovely pairing with something like cod mantecato, venetian- style. Great stuff” Matteo Furlan, The Ritz London.”
