Danebury Vineyards, established in 1988, have long been champions of Madeleine Angevine. This latest vintage makes the most of 2018’s exceptional ripening reason, resulting in a brilliant, crisp wine with all the delicate, feminine charms this grape brings. There are fresh, citrus peel aromas, tingling minerality and floral notes.
On the delicious palate there’s more of the same, beginning with crisp green apple, pear and lemon freshness. The ripe vintage shows through in the form of fleshy white peach, while light salinity and floral hints shine through on the finish.
I tasted this with a selection of homemade nigiri sushi, and the crispness and purity of the wine were perfect with the freshness of the seafood.
