Cloudy Bay Pelorus Brut nv

The tasters continue….$29.99 from Dan Murphys, 12.5% abv, sealed under cork.

Masses of swirly beads. Without even approaching the glass, I can smell a toasty yeast character. Moving closer, it is not as yeasty as it might have been years ago, as least as my memory goes; I remember a stronger almost Vegemite character. Still, a some pleasant yeast and biscuit. Palate is dry and lemony, with a touch of green apples. Quite fine, but not a lot of complexity. I suppose it could be cellared. Drink 2015+. 87 points.
