Type: Sparkling White
Approx Cost: $23
So apparently this is one of the better Australian sparklings. If it is, we’re miles (kilometres) away from the French, Americans and Italians. I broke the crown seal and felt a little strange. Mousse and bead is heavy but lingers for a while. Golden straw with a hint of green. Very strong lemon tastes with a little lime and orange. Fresh tasting because of the bubbles and lemon. Long, unrefined finish. Probably needed a few years of cellaring. It would be nice with some Malaysian, Vietnamese, etc.
I don’t think this is one of the better Australian sparklings. Maybe above average, but that’s it. I might prefer it for some types of food but it’s not that pleasurable drinking on it’s own.
