expert reviews about
2011 Frogmore Creek Method Traditionelle Tasmanian Cuvee
Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
New name, same incredible wine. Last year's winner of my Sparkling Wine of the Year under $50 has returned for an encore in the next vintage. Pinot noir declares its grand 88% presence in a full straw yellow hue and dramatic brush strokes of deep red cherry and mirabelle plum fruit. Seven years of age has built captivating layers of butterscotch, brioche, vanilla and glacÃ© fig. Yet for all of its complexity and succulent richness, it pulls seamlessly into a vibrant and honed tail of bright southern Tasmanian acidity, perfectly balanced by intimately integrated dosage. It exudes persistence, stamina and sheer jubilation. Drink 2017-2020.
