Macedon Brut Cuvée X LD- Clive Hartley (The Australian Wine Guide)
Some development as expected on appearance. Nose - medium plus intensity with complex secondary and tertiary aromas consisting of honey, toast, malt and autolytic characters. Palate was dry but importantly well balanced with some fine acid levels. Long length and finish with a pronounced flavour intensity similar to the nose but with marmalade notes.
It's a definite a sparkling wine that needs food matching rather than as an aperitif.
