Sparkling Roussanne Marsanne blend. Traditional Method. Need we say more?
This is the sophomore release of Moon Curser's Eclipse, a sparkling Roussanne and Marsanne blend made in the Traditional Method. This intriguing blend has a beautiful pale gold colour in the glass. The nose hints at the complexity of this fine wine - the magic of the Traditional Method lies in the development of the complex aromas of brioche, banana cream pie, meringue and nectarine. On the palate, this medium-bodied dry (Brut) sparkling wine displays a well-balanced structure with a flavourful palate of cinnamon, quince, orange peel and marzipan. The long-lasting finish and fine mousse create the 'one more glass, please!' effect. This is a wine that can either be enjoyed purely on its own, or with a wide array of different foods: anything from fresh oysters with lemon, a linguine with clams and fennel, to an elevated creamy macaroni and cheese with chorizo will be a pleasing pairing. Sparkling wine has typically been seen as only a celebration wine, but we encourage you to find something to celebrate every day, and enjoy the wine. We do expect this wine to continue developing very nicely in bottle through to 2030.
