LCBO#: 280925
Price: $17.00
Made in: Australia
By: Thorn-Clarke Wines
Varietal: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

The Pinot Noir grapes in this one adds a bit of colour to this South Australian sparkling. Close to looking like a Rosé. Yeast nose with hints of sweet fruits, like berries. This continues into the taste, with strawberry notes covering the yeast. Mild dryness with enough wetness to be refreshing. The yeast lingers in the aftertaste, with a little tart. An interesting Sparkling with some Pinot Noir to balance the Chardonnay. Still, a bit too much yeast for our likings. Taking over the nice fruitiness. Better colder for that reason.

Rating: 3.9/5
