Courabyra 805 Late Disgorged

A remarkable old Tumbarumba sparkling that astonished me when I first tasted it at the Australian Sparkling Wine Show two years ago, and remains every bit as impressive today. It’s surprising pale and bright at 13 years of age, and has attained a place where the buttery silkiness and roast nut character of bottle age meld gracefully with the cool focus of high altitude white citrus and stone fruits. The accord is magnificently silky and impeccably polished, right at its peak. Best price direct.
