Taylors Estate Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Taylors Estate strikes again with another affordable wine that punches above it's price point. Made the same way as Champagne, it is a light, crisp, vivacious style of fizz that shows bright aromas of citrus, stone fruits, toffee apples and buttered toast on the tempting nose, whilst the palate is light and creamy, with a nice zip of citrusy flavours, licks of peach and toast, a fine bubble, and a bright, crisp finish. It's made for drinking over the short-term, and would be great with some prawn kebabs.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: At release, the wine is a pale yellow colour.

Nose: At release, the wine displays clean citrus/lemon fragrances along with lifted floral blossom, toffee almonds, creme brulee and underlying hints of vanilla and rose water.

Palate: Initially the wine displays fresh citrus zest and stone fruit with a subtle honeyed toast and poached pear richness. The mid-palate then showcases a creamy softness, layered with vanilla and sweet spice. Overall, the wine is well-balanced with a fine, delicate mousse and finishes with clean and crisp, refreshing acid. Nuances of crème brûlée, quince, and a tingling minerality accompany the finish.

Cellaring: This wine is crafted for immediate enjoyment but will also reward careful short-term cellaring.

Alcohol: 12.5%
