    Soft pale lemon. Complex aromas of white bread and ripe opulence on the nose - peaches, tropical fruit, red apples, apple blossom and pears. On the palate, rich complexity and nice acidity with apples the dominant fruit: cooking apples, scented russets, autumnal notes with a long fine minerality giving an almost stony structure to the ripe fruit. Very much ripe fruit, roundness and maybe some red apple peel phenolics. Bubbles are very fine, acidity well integrated with a crunchy finish. Would love this this with the sweet nutty rusticity of a roast pumpkin, maybe softened into a risotto. Really lovely and approachable.
