The day after my birthday, and flying on Bruce Air to / from Lisbon, the guys in the office decided to celebrate it again. It was a Friday, after all! So we went over to Planet of the Grapes, and Marc did us a great deal on this. Initially, when well chilled, this had notable lees character of cream on the nose. This warmed into toasty, biscuity complexity. Pale lemon with some green glints and a fine, persistent bead. Delicate mousse gave finesse to the palate. Pretty high acidity, but with some touches of buttery malo-lactic alongside the green apple and citrus. 30-50% malo? Pretty good length. An enjoyable glass!
