Completing the range of Exton Park’s new RB series, the Blanc de Blancs RB45 is perhaps the most unique of the series. While it maintains the estate’s Reserve Blend approach, it’s the first wine from Exton Park to feature prominent oak ageing (25% in second use Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels) and malolactic fermentation (30%).
The result is an engrossing, textural wine that still retains that signature, glistening Exton Park minerality and purity. The nose is hugely inviting with orchard fruits, citrus zest, white peach and a lick of Burgundian oak.
To taste, it’s the brisk, tingling acidity and chalky minerality that take me right back to the chalky hills of Exton Park. The mid-taste intermingles crunchy green apple, citrus zest with light creamy waves and a touch of creamy lemon posset.
Bright with striking minerality, but rounded by a silky soft mousse and ripe fruit
