Purity and painstaking attention to detail here, from Australia’s most awarded sparkling winemaker.
‘gleaming… and very, very complex, in full-blown Arras style at its towering best, with layer-upon-layer of complexity ex brioche, toast, flint, white peach and apple… the overall mouthfeel strongly suggests this exceptional wine has time to go.’
