WINE REVIEW

This 2010 release is Breaky Bottom’s 100% Seyval Blanc signature sparkling. The wine has spent an impressive 5 years on the lees and was disgorged approximately 8 months ago.

On pouring, a pale golden coloured wine with slightly green hues and fine streams of tiny persistent bubbles.

Bright aromas of citrus; lemon and lime zest leap out of the glass with riper notes of pear and apricot. Hints of dried flower add interest.

Strikingly fresh acidity up front, the Koizumi Yakumo entertains with fresh Granny Smith apple and clean orchard fruit flavours.

The acidity and freshness is laser-like and straight down the line – but there’s a surprising weight to support it. A silky luxurious layered finish rounds off a sublime Seyval Blanc sparkler from Breaky Bottom.
