Summerhill’s impressive Blanc de Blanc (white wine from white grapes) fizz has four years of maturing on its lees in bottle, which adds oodles of complexity. Expect aromas of golden apples, hazelnut praline, creamed pears, bread dough and toast. The palate is a perfect mimic of the nose; it is creamy and intricate and is supported by a fine mousse and long tangy finish. It has fantastic balance and style. - Daenna Van Mulligen, Vines Magazine, Spring 2016
