WINE: GRANT BURGE Pinot Noir Chardonnay NV

Type: Sparkling White
Origin: Australia
Approx Cost: $20

A methode traditionelle sparkling, which is always good to see. Well packaged, which is somewhat of a change for Australian wines. Mousse isn’t anything special, likewise the bead which doesn’t last too long. Light straw with a hint of red. Light, complex aroma. Tastes of biscuit and stone fruit. Smokey. Hints of crispness. Finish is quite dry. Would go well with canap├ęs.

Complex wine and decent value, but lacking something special. At times it feels like a muddle of flavours. Better options for the price that are worth trying.

Interesting review. I've sold a lot of this wine at my bottle shop purely based on the packaging and the Grant Burge name. I've never tried it though.
