Howard Park Jeté Brut NV

The Brut NV younger sibling to the Grand Vintage reviewed earlier. Possesses a very lively bead with a little mousse  Aromas of a little apple skin with some suggestion of baked goods - aromatically shy compared to the big brother.

The palate shows a little more of the same, hints of baked apple, mineral here with a good line of acid. Moderate intensity of flavour, you'd be happy with this at $26 - as some dining companions suggested, a good aperitif style, offering ease of consumption, 'smashable' in the context of sparkling wine.

All up it lacks the obvious complexity of it's grander stablemate, but it's a good fizz, happy days indeed at $26. 89
