With the festive celebrations well underway, it means someone somewhere is certain to be popping a cork. I’m pleased to say that this sparkler from Step Road is good for the price in that I’d happily chug a glass down in the name of the silly season!
It kicks off with baked apples and yeast notes, in fact it could be a vivid apple Danish, notes of strawberry and cherry lurk underneath. The palate delivers, a creaminess and then a crunch from the fresh acids. It delivers the aforementioned apples with more yeasty, vegemite notes and ends fairly dry with admirable length. A bubbly that’s a step in the right direction.
