WINE REVIEW

The inaugural Classic Cuvée from Lyme Bay. The wine is a blend of 81% Pinot Noir and 19% Chardonnay, with a large portion of the fruit coming from Langham Estate.

Compared to the Brut Reserve, this is a very different wine both in and out of the glass! Finer and less ferocious bubbles with a pleasing warm golden tone.

The nose on this wine is much more opulent and ripe – think sticky pear tart and ripe peach. Hints of sweet pastry and honey suggest this wine will be rich delight!

I tasted this wine nearly a year ago and it wasn’t quite ready then, but it really feels integrated now. The wine has gorgeous silky textures that envelope the ripe baked apple and stone fruit flavours. Ripe, rich and moreish!
