Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Pale bronze-salmon; very intense and long flavours; precise and zesty, with some positive aldehyde. Gold medal Tas Wine Show '09.

The first port of call here is that this looks the part in the glass-ticking away with a fine stream of small bubbles that holds its bead nicely. Aromas are of dried fruits, intense and savoury, with plenty of well-crafted complexity. Impressive precision and texture on the palate, it unfolds in fine layers, classy stuff and truly elegant.

Fine, pure; very good structure and focus; attractive pear, citrus and stone fruit; lovely aftertaste.

Made in the pursuit of excellence, the Bay of Fires wines are as captivating as the beautiful coastline from which they take their name. Now that, my friends, is poetry. As someone who has written his fair share of abominable back labels (try to find a bottle of the not-surprisingly defunct Mount Tanglefoot for an example of my best work), this sort of stuff is manna from heaven. Terrific bubbles, too.

Very delicate, fresh, crisp and fine aperitif style; citrussy flavours; good balance and length.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; quite fragrant white peach fruit with some bready/yeasty aromas is followed by a fine, delicate and highly focused palate, with citrus and nectarine flavours, fading slightly on the finish. A blend of Tasmanian and Yarra Valley base wine, which spends 4 years on lees.

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

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.
