Westwell The Pelegrim Extra Dry NV
Scores: CT:89 AVG: 89
The Pelegrim Brut NV is a traditional bottle-ferment (rather than tank fermented) sparkling wine that is made from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay with reserve wines from previous vintages to give further complexity and a consistent extra dry non-vintage style. The wines are lees-aged in bottle for 18-24 months to give depth and some biscuity aromas which only bottle-fermentation can deliver. Fine persistent mousse and bubbles. Amber colour with fresh aromas of apples, raspberries and sourdough with a full palate and a lemon twist at the end.
