Yelland & Papps Devote Sparkling Vermentino 2016

I love how a good Vermentino can simply evoke this marine spirit; being of the sea, with its briny-cum-sea spray on air character, in tandem with all things spring-laden and green. Well, it does so to this hack anyway. 

On pour, it's a lively mousse, somewhat aggressively dancing and foaming across the surface. Take it unto yourself, a pronounced chalky citrus on entry, cascading and flowing gently across the palate. A gentle tickle with a fine bead enlivens this further. A delight, and the best I have seen it. 92
