Cracka Review

Imagine a sparkling that’s good for the environment, How could you refuse to pop a cork on a Banrock when you know some of the proceeds go towards conservation causes? At just under $10 you’ll be more than happy with this bubbly little number as it ticks all the right boxes when it comes to celebrating an occasion or two. Pairing the classic varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot makes for a successful and lifted nose of strawberry and citrus as well as some yeasty complexity. It’s awash with berry flavours before a soft, creamy mouthfeel of persistent bubbles and lively yet balanced acids. It marries well with sashimi or any cured fish.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Pale Straw with youthful green/gold hue

Bouquet and Palate: The Banrock Station Sparkling Chardonnay displays lifted fresh citrus and strawberry fruit characters. The palate has fresh berry fruit flavours, soft and creamy with a fine structure. Lively effervescence with a natural acid finish.

Food: The ideal accompaniment is fresh seafood.

Expert Reviews

Peter Forrestal says
Over the years, this has been Quaffs most consistent sparkling wine, especially in the under-$10 category. There were no problems with the wine in this year's tasting, but it didn't get the high points that it usually does. It is clean, fresh and lively, has attractive creamy texture and gentle, fine acidity.

Banrock's white bubbly is now a blend of pinot and chardonnay and it's cheaper than last year - but it's every bit as good as it's ever been. Actually, no, it's better than ever. You simply don't expect to find complex flavours of grape and yeast and apple, a subtle creamy mouthfeel or a fine delicate finish in a bottle of eight-buck bubbly. But that's what you get with Banrock.
