Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Traditional method, bottle-fermented, with a predominant chardonnay base, plus small quantities of pinot noir and pinot meunier. Made in an aperitif style, it has persistent, fine mousse, and a long palate; stone fruit and creamy yeast notes combine, and carry through to the well-balanced finish.

A stylish, creamy and deeply fruitful sparking wine whose faintly mineral bouquet of grapefruit, lemon, ginger and cinnamon overlie fresh nutty yeast-derived complexity. It's long, smooth and vibrant, with a lightly toasty, chardonnay-driven presence of juicy nectarine, melon and grapefruit flavour over a fine chalkiness. It finishes fresh and tangy with a finely balanced acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Smoky, nutty, peachy and citrusy aromas are backed by nuances of herbs and slightly funky yeast. It’s slightly sweet, with a round and juicy expression of peaches, nectarines and cream finishing crisply and cleanly with a crunchy, lemony acidity and a lingering core of tangy citrus and stonefruit flavour.
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
A good example of blanc de blanc style, with lots of citrus, and quite creamy mouthfeel; a little simple, but nice flavour.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Delicate, pristine and perhaps a little bland, it's scented with white flowers and peaches backed by nutty, creamy undertones. Smooth and silky, this restrained, spotless and squeaky clean Californian-styled sparkling chardonnay finishes with soft acids and lingering presence of creamy stonefruit flavour.

The price is daunting for a wine with attractive but light flavours (100% chardonnay) and certainly little complexity.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Fresh and vibrant, with flavours of peach, melon, nectarine and pineapple backed by lightly toasty, creamy nuances, this long and tangy sparkling chardonnay finishes long and clean, with lingering juicy flavours and refreshing acids.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Lightly toasty, buttery and peachy aromas reveal creamy undertones of melon and lemon. Its toasty, rather broad and awkward palate of rich nectarine and tropical fruit flavours lacks genuine tightness and freshness.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Fragrant citrus blossom aromatics; elegant, fresh and lively aperitif style.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Simply, fruity and varietal sparkling chardonnay whose light, spicy aromas of lime and lemon and vibrant, fluffy and lemony palate offer freshness, flavour and a hint of toastiness. Uncomplicated, lively and clean.
