This is a bubbly that would be terrific with food. In fact, it needs food to tone it down: bold yeasty flavours, creamy texture, and rich, powerful and zesty to finish.

Tangy citrus and tangerine fruit, relatively dry finish.

From the bottom (Yellow) to the top, the Yellowglen range continues to impress right across the board. This is quite the refined bubble, and I have it on good authority they drank it at that small family wedding in Manly back in June. Oh all right, that's a whopper; of course they didn't. They probably drank Moet. Bur they could have done a lot worse than this, and saved a bit of coin

Good mousse; very fresh, lively and bright apple/stone fruit flavours; not particularly complex.

There are now more Yellowglens on the market than there are vines in Victoria. There is the Cremant, the new-look Bella (much sweeter), of course yellow, red, pink and vermilionÑand probably several others I have not yet had the joy of tasting. But the original is still the best. This is absolutely top shelf, beautifully made, crackerjack bubbles. When it's on special, manufacture an occasion to celebrate.

Bronze tints; fresh; touches of spice and bread; strawberry fruit on the palate; good length, crisp finish; clever dosage.

Yellowglen has been a staple of the bubble-loving set for an eternity; in fact if you go back twenty years it was the first serious challenger to Minchinbury and Barossa Pearl. Last year for the first time Yellowglen became a vintage wine, meaning all the fruit comes from the same year, which seems only to have improved the product. This pinot noir chardonnay is delicate, fresh and quite dryÑa lovely style that will keep everyone smiling.

Elegant; biscuity/brioche flavours layered on apple and stone fruit; fine, elegant finish; good dosage; 3 years on lees.

Jeremy Oliver (2000 Vintage) says
Pungent toasty, buttery aromas of melon and honey, with citrusy undertones precede a chewy palate whose generous flavours of peach and melon, fig and cumquat culminate in a nutty, savoury finish.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Very pale straw-green and strong mousse; the fragrant and lively bouquet has a mix of spice and citrus, the fine, very delicate and crisp palate with good length. The wine spent 30 months on lees, and is a blend of Pi not Nair, Chardonnay and a touch of Pin at Meunier.

Beringer Blass have continued to produce some good value quaffers since taking over this significant Victorian sparkling wine producer. Like the Tatachilla, this is made from 100 per cent pinot noir and is full-bodied, has some biscuity, bready characters and some sweetness on the finish. At its best with food.
