An intriguing style of sparkling from the Yarra. Fragrant and very much in the bold and brassy style. Notes of stonefruit sit upon rich toastiness and brioche characters. Has some serious length and maintains its intensity throughout. Well balanced. An impressive New World fizz. This is a no dosage sparkler (meaning bone dry), but it avoids any of the harshness that mars that style which seems to afflict the non-dosage Champagnes coming from some famous names.
