Albury Estate Organic Classic Cuvee Brut 2016
This organic & biodynamic English sparkler is elegant, crisp and dry. Gives any Champagne in this price bracket a run for its money.
Fruit forward, fresh and lively, on the nose this organic and biodynamic Classic Cuvee displays subtle notes of fresh lemon and lime zest, honey, melon, as well as ripe red berries (from the Pinot Noir). With a mouth-filling texture and a lengthy finish, this wine is satisfying and celebratory.
