Raposeira Velha Reserva Bruto 2011 - $26.95/btl (6x750mL)
Region: Távora-Varosa, Beiras and Douro, Portugal
Varieties: Chardonnay and Cerceal
Tasting Note: A traditional method sparkling wine, the top of the range from Raposeira, Portugal's oldest sparkling wine producer. Pale yellow in colour, this complex and leesy sparkler shows incredible elegance with notes of lemon poppy seed loaf, crushed apple and honeysuckle notes, followed by a long creamy finish. The bubbles are fine and persistent, with incredible rounded mouthful due to the 7 years of bottle ageing on the lees before disgorgement. Excellent and elegant sparkling wine, pair with rich seafood or oysters.
