Esses Kaikoura Couer de Cuvée Blanc de Blancs (2015)

Full of personality, the vigorous 2015 vintage (5*) was grown at Kaikoura, in North Canterbury, and disgorged after almost four years on its yeast lees. Light straw, with a persistent 'bead', it is a vivacious wine, with a strong, citrusy fragrance and intense, yeasty, slightly toasty flavours, showing excellent complexity and length. Well worth discovering.
