Julie and Mark at Artelium describe their Curators Cuvée 2018 as offering a super concentrated nose. Opulent, polished aromas of lemon peel and aromatic balm, pink lady apple and fresh pastry. The palate is bright and intense; a wicked line of clean acidity keeps it brisk, the well-ripe fruit hangs off it keenly. Crisp pear, subtle tropical fruit notes. Long, tense toasted-brioche finish.
A fantastic aperitif in its own right. Curators Cuvée pairs beautifully with shellfish, seafood of all kinds and fresh, clean vegetable dishes. It is an opulent, fun counterbalance to crunchy, fried dishes like Panko-crumbed chicken or filo pastry bites.
