Margrain Vineyard 'La Michelle' Methode Traditionelle

Alive, Alive’O, the palate opens fair, fat and wide as it dances like the sugar plum fairy on a tightly coiled double helix of clean acidity. The combination of tartness and foam swirl around the mouth like tidal wash in a south coast rock pool, cleansing the taste buds with the efficiency of a lime sorbet. Tangy lime marmalade and piquant feijoa skin leads on to creamed sweetcorn, crunchy hokey pokey and the reassuring flavours of bread and butter pudding.

There is a smooth and almost oily texture, reminiscent of a lawyer in a pinstripe suit which imparts a mischievous yet convincing quality to the argument. As usual, the wine is a blend of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay, drawing on the best of both varieties.

Chill to toast any worthy occasion.
