Shaw Vineyard Estate Cuvée Sparkling 2015

No variety or blend composition listed, but I couldn't escape the pungent aroma of the grassy, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc emanating from the glass. Creamy citrus softens the blow, adding an extra dimension here. [So much for my Sav-dar, it's all Semillon - tho I thought Cuvée to mean 'blend'. ]

The palate is initially soft, citrus - again - segueing to a loose flow with a sweetened edge.  Offers decent refreshment across the middle. Fresh, citrusy. 87

Tasted on: Sunday 30th October, a Root to Flower day
