Radenti 2011 Tasmanian Sparkling
Winery : Freycinet Vineyard
Pale honey coloured with golden glints. Aromas of nougat, praline, buttery pastry, cloves, sweet citrus curd....all the lovely Christmas things. Really fine and lively bead. So rich in the mouth, (dare I say it) 'K..g-like', almost chewy/chalky texture and layers and layers of flavour. The acid provides clarity and refreshment, but is by no means the dominant act. Like K..g, there should be only two people sharing a bottle of Radenti, in order to get the taste right.
Rivals many a big house NV Champagne for its richness, complexity and sheer joy.
