Golden straw in colour with a fine persistent bead.  The nose reveals a wine of great character and complexity, no doubt in part due to significant time spent on lees (6 years).  There is peach compote, fresh strawberry, buttered toast and roasted cashew notes.  The palate is creamy and expansive, showing more fleshy peach and red berries along with some toasty, savoury autolysis characters, hints of honeycomb, almond and cashew nut.  The wine has impressive length of flavour, with a lingering savoury nutty character.

 

93/100 Ray Jordan     
“This sparkling wine is hitting a new level of complexity as it ages. Gets five years on lees so it really picks up a decent autolysis influence. It’s pinot noir dominant so there is power and depth while the chardonnay adds a nice floral lift on the nose and adds to the creaminess on the palate. Terrific Aussie sparkling wine.”

 

91/100 James Halliday
“Rich, heady style. Sets you back on your heels. Toast, wool, peach and honeysuckle. There's no escaping the benefit of 5 years on lees, as this wine ably demonstrates. Not a great deal of persistence but flavour and then some.”
