Upperton Alia 2011 Blanc de Blanc

Upperton Alia 2011 Blanc de Blanc

Light gold. Strong persistent mousse of fine bubbles.

Pronounced brioche and slight toast on the nose, with citrus and floral hints. Also light melted butter aroma.

The palate has good, firm body with full, rich flavours and balanced acidity. Complex flavours with apple, yellow plums and citrus fruits, good length and a slight biscuity finish.

Deliciously refreshing yet rich and complex. A great expression of the Chardonnay grape variety, with a distinctly English edge adding further interest.

Tasted 28th September 2014.
