Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Vintage 2012 October. Solid pop off the cork with a little bit of nudging.
Really pretty body color, opaque with a real nice peach orange body. Lots of rising thin carbonation. Head is a little off white, kind of soapy but manages some retention and settles slowly to an easy finger puck.
Nose has a good pepper brett sense and nice hints of fresh squeezed lemon. A light sweet malt caramel hides in the back. Pretty solid and mouthwatering, with a jammy apricot sense of sweetness. Hints of sugarsnap cookies and dough also. Real interesting.
Palate is fairly solid on the fruit forward angle. Jammy apricot body with a nice round texture. Doesn't feel as carbonated as expected. Very big full fruit and rich mouthfeel with a nice density. Hints raw cookie dough which seems so odd but fun! Tannic quality is really nice if hardly noticeable, with a good softness.
Overall a real neat take and strangely not wine like, but with great wine character. Enjoyable.
