The wine is a pale straw green in color and it has a very fine, yet persistent bead. On the nose there are lifted strawberry, citrus and nutty aromas with just a hint of sherbet character. On the palate it is a medium to full bodied style with generous stonefruit and citrus flavors and a very smooth, yet generous finish.
Viticulture: This wine is a combination of chardonnay (57%) and pinot noir (43%) sourced from premium vineyards within the premier grape growing regions of Adelaide Hills, Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale. The fruit was hand picked to ensure maximum control of natural freshness and retention of primary flavors.
Much better than sparkling wine costing 2 to 3 times as much
Usually I am able to doctor up a poor sparkling with bitters and sugar, or OJ or some other juice, but this one went down the drain after 3 attempts to make it drinkable. Who ever rated this wine needs his tastebuds tested.
There were three of us. We sipped; we gave each other disappointed looks; we poured the rest down the drain.
