Hazendal Scarlet Sails MCC 2015

Colour : Pale straw.
Aroma : Prominent notes of toasted brioche welcome the nose to the glass, followed by baked green apple and citrus notes. The voyage on the nose culminates with subtle hints of almond and violets.
Palate : The mouthfeel is full and luxurious, with a fine mousse on the palate. Bursts of grapefruit and buttery brioche entice the taste buds, while the clean acidity ensures a long and elegant finish.
