  • Little story about this wine - I served it at my wedding because it just delivers all you want in great Aussie Sparkling wine without the Champagne price tag. What really stands out is its' Audrey Hepburn elegance and you can't go wrong with that!

  • Crystal clear with a persistent bead. The Bay of Fires Pinot Chardonnay is light straw in colour, with a fresh green gold hue. A very complex wine exhibiting toast, lanolin, sea brine and fresh yoghurt characters on the nose.

    The palate is finely structured and yet is long, powerful and complex. Multiple layers of oyster, truffle and cherry brandy build in this intriguing wine. The wine has great depth of character from extended ageing and yet retains a fresh vibrancy of life.

    Food - Blue swimmer crab risotto with mascarpone and lemon zest.

  • James Halliday says:

    Bright, pale straw-green; showing little development from its 3 years on lees; the bouquet is complex, with toast/brioche/honey aromas leading into a beautifully balanced palate, with fresh stone fruit to the fore, creamy brioche coming again on the finish.

    James Halliday says:

    Brilliant yellow-gold; a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay matured on yeast lees for an average of three years, yet seemingly not bottle-fermented. It is vibrant and very tangy/zesty, with pith and cherry stone characters, and a dry finish.

    Nick Stock says:

    This has some assertive red fruits and really perfumed red florals, a very pretty wine to smell and a citrusy undercurrent running through here too. Terrific acidity and crunchy balance; there's impressive concentration and length, coupled with gentle complexity, smooth texture and innate balance.

    James Halliday says:

    Pale and bright; fine citrus fruit, and a touch brioche on the bouquet; fine bead, with a delicate mousse, chalky acidity and a focused finish.

    Tyson Stelzer says:

    Ninth Island and Jansz are your vivacious apéritif non vintage go-tos, and Bay of Fires is to be reserved for altogether different purposes. BOF is a full-bodied, rich sparkling of main course proportions. Salmon, roast chicken and turkey, here we come! Three years on lees have nurtured a creamy and soft style, layered with bready, brioche complexity and the buttery, silky texture of malolactic fermentation. It’s a complex and well crafted sparkling that showcases the expertise of Ed Carr, upholding its focus in lemon and red apple fruit definition. Acidity and dosage are well integrated, making it ripe to enjoy right away.

    Best Drinking: 2013 - 2014

    James Halliday says:

    Highly aromatic, with strong stone fruit and mandarin, and abundant overall flavour; perhaps a little short on finesse.

    James Halliday says:

    Pale straw-green, good mousse; extremely fine, delicate strawberry notes ex the pinot noir come through quite strongly; good length and balance.

    Nick Stock says:

    Plenty of forthright red-fruit character here, bright floral lift, gentle fresh yeasty complexity and citrus fruits lurking below. On the palate, it has the same confident, concentrated appeal, with crunchy acid bite and decent fruit flesh nicely contained, building through to a smooth, drying finish.

    WINESTATE says:

    Youthful lime/citrus wine with nice rich flavour development. _Perhaps a touch sweet,î said one judge.
