After my disappointment with the Tempranillo in the Edenvale Expedition Series, I was a little nervous about cracking this bottle. I had heard a lot of positive things about it and am always hopeful of finding exciting new options.
Turns out there was no need to be nervous! Nice pop, enticing aroma, and my first mouthful was quite a surprise. The flavour here is LEGIT. A real fully bodied traditional cuvee profile. Not too sweet, a citrus finish with a real depth of flavour. It’s a very decent mimic for the real thing. Certainly a step up from the McGuigan (best saved for spritz).
My only minor note is that the finish is more “fizzy” than “bubbly”. There’s no real bead happening in the glass and the mouth feel is more sherbet than champagne. But it’s a minor trade off for the excellent flavour.
