The 2015 Aster has a bright golden straw colour and a fine persistent mousse. Aromas of orange zest, lemon curd and warm brioche with honey captivate the senses. Rich flavours of poached pears and guava reward the mid palate while lingering notes of strawberry, oyster shell and slate will leave you wanting more.
"Oh my gosh! If you’d have told me this was champagne, I would have absolutely believed you. This has a perfect rich brioche-y nose with a hint of marmalade. Take a sip and savour those fine bubbles fizzing on your tongue and taste honeyed poached pears, and something that I just couldn’t immediately identify... but it was so utterly wonderful I kept sipping and sipping and sipping and… and now I can’t remember what you wanted? Anyway. I had it with salt-and-pepper oven-baked chicken wings and it was absolutely awesome."
