The RB32 Brut is the only one of the wines in the initial Exton Park RB range to feature Chardonnay (40%) in the blend, together with 60% Pinot Noir.
Of the three launch wines, this one was probably the boldest, most expressive. The nose was captivating: an intriguing fusion of floral hints, light citrus, crunchy orchard fruit and lightly honeyed tones, with gentle toasted notes.
To taste, the RB32 was also absolutely in its element. The signature Exton Park crunchy acidity and purity was there in spades, supported by soft waves of ripe apple, peach skin and even suggestions of melon.
There’s a real harmony in the profile – both striking and elegant, straddling a fine tightrope between suggestions of autolytic complexity, lean, crisp orchard fruits and those ever so subtle suggestions of honeyed stone fruit.
