Muratie Lady Alice MCC 2011

Muratie Lady Alice MCC 2011

Layers and layers of flavour characterise this classically-styled MCC. The pronounced aromas of lemons, limes, almond blossom and toasted cereals are echoed on the palate where the frothy, persistent bubbles dance on your tongue as the flavours move through more citrus, toasted buttered brioche and a distinctively salty edge, all of it wrapped up in rich butter cream. Vibrant acidity adds zest to each mouthful of rounded fruit and the finish is long and lingering, ending with a final salty, tangy twist.

It's a wine for celebrations and commiserations, for drinking on its own or pairing with food (try oysters or Gentleman’s Relish on toast) and is certain to turn any occasion into something memorable and special.
