|Grape||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay|
Very firm and crisp on the palate, with notes of peach skin, oyster shell and pickled ginger.

Aged on the lees for 22 months. Base wine is 2018 plus 60% reserve wine. 4,024 bottles produced. Disgorged 21 December 2020. Dosage 6 g/l.
Tasted blind. Pale red, saignée appearance. Smells like a red wine! Does not conform to a stereotype of a pink sparkling wine. Lightly bitter with lots of fruit. Gone out on a limb. A good drink!
