Style | Complex
A wine that changes shape in your mouth and in the glass as its swirled around. A wine with many layers of flavours that start one way, then open up on the mid-palate and deliver a lengthy finish. All great wine is complex, and all complex wines are age worthy. If a wine is over worked or over extracted, it will not age well all great wine starts with top-quality grapes that have a good intensity of fruit, medium-high level of acidity and medium-high level tannins. Ultimately the fruit, acidity and tannins/oak need to be in balance in order for the wine to develop and age well. Factors that can influence complexity include viticultural practices (grape varieties, lowering yields, irrigation, and winemaking practices (grape skin maceration, micro-oxygenation, lees stirring, further ageing). If your preference is for more complex style wines, look out for wines with elegant and savoury notes such as aged Burgundy, Barolo, Champagne.

One of the finest champagnes with tiny perlage and delicate froth. The very expressive, fruity nose shows bergamot, candied lemon, pastry and crème patissiere. Followed by a generous, concentrated palate full of ripe fruit, mango, guava and touches of oak. The finish is long and fresh.
