Type: Sparkling white
Origin: Hunter Valley, NSW
Approx Cost: $15
The only sparkling white that Bimbadgen make across all of their ranges, if I’m not mistaken. But whatever, I’m always keen to try a new sparkling wine that I haven’t had before. And a sparkling semillon. Awesome.
Surprisingly medium-fine mousse and bead. The bead dies out pretty quickly which isn’t a great sign. Pale straw in colour, but it looks a little weak. Palate is a bit boring. Heavy with the lime and a background of lemon. Some floral notes in there. Toasty. But a really weak, unrefined finish.
It’s good for the price, but it certainly doesn’t compete with many things above that price range.
