Very alluring and expressive on the nose, with a floral richness. Lovely balance between amplitude and nuance: the mousse is particularly fine and soft, but the finish is long and pristine. Classy and hugely charming Rosé.
JCL 92 Tasting note: Lean, focused, detailed Champagne with beautiful, fine acidity. The dosage here is very low - only 6 gm/litre and the focus is on the racy acidity and citrus profile. A year or two of bottle age should round out the sharp acidity and make the wine more harmonious. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China. Maturity: Drink. (27-Nov-2013) [Asian Palate Jeannie Cho Lee]
When the Rothschilds decide they want to get into (for them) a relatively new area of winemaking, it is worth paying attention. No expense was spared in producing their range of top class champagnes. They haven't got the kudos and gravitas that comes with making champagne for a hundred years plus but they have a habit of rewriting and/or making history and we think the quality in the glass will win over all doubters over time. Tasting note: A lean Champagne that relies heavily on Chardonnay - 60%. This is an elegant, focused Champagne with hints of pear, lemon and starfruit. Subtle and classy. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China. Maturity: Drink....
Tasting note: A lean and angular Rose with just a hint of salmon-pink colour. An elegant style with focused acidity and lacy details with notes of strawberries and pomelo on the palate. Tasted in: Hong Kong, China. Maturity: Drink. (27-Nov-2013) [Asian Palate Jeannie Cho Lee]
A star find for us at Vinitaly in Verona last year. We are very happy to show the latest vintage. The unique (patented) bottle design is a standout and thankfully the contents are as well. Vibrant pink colour with hints of cherries and strawberries on the nose, clean fresh fruit on the palate with crisp acid holding it all together for a dry finish. A real crowd pleaser.
Conegliano lies in the Valdobiaddene region of Veneto from which the very best of prosecco is sourced.. The only more prestigious sebregion is Cartizze (see Villa Sandi for our version).There are many other cheaper versions available in the market but for the few dollars more that the good stuff demands in price, there really is no point in skimping.
We have been looking for a good example of this style for a long time and we think we have it nailed with this one. Too often you will find sparkling moscato expressed as overly sweet, cloying and boring. This beauty however has a great acid backbone that lifts the fruit, tames the sweetness in the middle palate and delivers a long and deliciously sweet finish with no hint of cloying. Delightful as an aperatif, served ice cold.

"Gorgeous bubbles." Hugh Johnson Dec 2016. This new venture in the South of England is the carefully planned project of none other than our good friend and famous wine personality, Steven Spurrier. He , his wife Arabella (Bella) and daughter Kate have set out with a goal to produce world class sparkling wine from a region that centuries ago rivalled the great vineyards of Champagne. After many year of searching they found a plot with precisely the same chalky suboill structure as the best of the grand cru vineyards of Champagne and planted it with the best clones available. Winery Notes: Typically a blend of 50% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay...

Tyson Stelzer 93+. "With...thirty percent declassified premier cru fruit in the blend, this is as cracking as I have ever seen Brut 17. A pristine bouquet of vibrant lemons and strawberry hull opens out into a palate of fantastic, linear freshness with great persistence, a fine, creamy bead and refreshing minerality. An ideal aperitif style. This champagne ranks as among the best value small producer champagnes. Super elegant champagne style." TS.
Decanter Magazine ~ Top 50 Wines of the Year James Suckling ~ 95 Points ~ "Outstanding buy with a whopping nine years en tirage, this has a super contained set of complex aromas - toasty yeast notes, grilled almonds and red berries all packed in close and tight. The palate revolves around a core of concentrated lemon drop flavor, and acidity is a leading element, holding the finish well. Superfine and super fresh for the age. Drink now." Wine Spectator ~ 91 Points ~ "Fresh and lithe, this open-knit Champagne is lightly chalky in texture, with notes of white raspberry, piecrust, pickled ginger, and lemon zest. Disgorged July 7, 2014.

WS 90, WE 90, G&G 89. Tasting note: Light gold. The nose opens up to vegetal and floral notes then displays a fruity and lightly toasted character. Full, supple and melted attack with refined texture and bubbles. The mid-palate is more nervy, imparting a pleasant freshness. (28-Feb-2013) [Gilbert & Gaillard]
The NV Brut Premier is a gorgeous wine that stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of wines in its price range. Apparently, it is quite possible to make great Champagne that doesn’t cost a small fortune. Ripe pears, smoke, spices, dried flowers and herbs are some of the many nuances that emerge from the glass. The Brut Premier shows lovely mid-palate depth and fabulous overall balance. Chef de Caves Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has done it again. This is a fabulous Brut Premier. The Brut Premier is based on the 2007 vintage, with approximately 20% 2006 wines and 10% older reserves going back to 1996. The blend is approximately 40%...
Winery Notes: Sparkling red wines are a great Australian tradition, and along with other wineries Majella has kept the tradition alive with our very popular sparkling Shiraz. Their Sparkling Shiraz is bottled fermented on "lees" for just on 48 months. The wine is then disgorged and a small amount of "liqueur" (sweetener) is added. In the true Aussie tradition they use some really fantastic vintage port. The wine is now packaged under a "Crown Seal" which eliminates any problems with leakage or cork taint. It's a great wine for any occasion, and goes well with most food styles. "Spicy licorice and intensely powerful Shiraz. Rich and leathery....

Now this is special. Made from 100% chardonnay grapes. Delightful. James Halliday 95 points. Tyson Stelzer 95 points. The vibrant yellow green colour is on full display in the clear glass bottle, but it needs to be protected from light. Perhaps complaining at this price is churlish, for the wine rides on the wings of flowery, lemon blossom aromas and an almost razor-sharp linearity to the wonderfully long palate leaving the mouth fresh, thirsting for more. RRP $125; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday; Wine Companion.
Winery Notes. Every spring our winemaker, Mark Bulman, meticulously assesses the multitudes of Shiraz barrels and a select few are set aside for sparkling production. Rich in primary fruit and naturally low in tannin this Shiraz is perfect for this bottle-fermented sparkling wine. The Shiraz then goes into our solera system to join other base wines and aged in French casks. The base wine is then blended and tiraged in the traditional method. Following the secondary fermentation the wine is left to mature on lees for approximately one year before disgorgement and liquoring with our own Pedro Ximenez. Beneath a rich shade of crimson lies at...
In Gift Box All that one would expect from a balanced Champagne. Doesn't hit the high notes of the hand-crafted or more precise Champagnes but balanced and infinitely drinkable. (16-Oct-2012) Jeannie Cho Lee
Chateau Tasting Notes: "Its clear, brilliant, gold colour glitters in the fine and voluptuous effervescence of its wonderfully delicate bubbles. The nose is frank, fresh and very ethereal. Delicate floral fragrances arrive first and are then gently married with the freshness of white fruit aromas (pear, fresh apple). Rich notes of more fleshy fruits (Mirabelle plum, peach, mango) then really bring out the purity of the aromas. On the palate, the attack is clean and gentle. In perfect harmony with the nose, aromas of flowers and white fruits bring huge freshness that combines perfectly with the full and round character of its sweet pastry...
3 glasses Gambero Rosso 2011/2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017... Recognised in top 100 wines by Grandi Cru d'Italia judging committee. This deliciously fresh, lively and dry style prosecco represents the very finest that Italy can offer. The Cartizze region comprises only 107 hectares and is the most revered of all for growing the glera grape from which prosecco is made. Cartizze is to prosecco what Mesnil is to champagne. Production is tiny and of the very highest quality. Outstanding. A must try. This is as good as prosecco gets....period.
Excellent bone dry prosecco that ticks all the boxes. Pure fruit, excellent persistent bead, crisp acidity and clean, dry finish. DOCG quality through and through.
