Expert Reviews

"You can almost feel the wine speaking in a silly French accent, but you will forgive such idiosyncrasy because it is yummy. " 8.8/10 - Max Crus, Daily Advertiser (12/Oct/2010)

"The 2008 Brut is attractive in the glass, as is its creaminess in the mouth. Citrus comes through with hints of red fruits and yeasty characters on a complex palate."Mike Burnett, Launceston Examiner (21/Apr/2010)

"Intensely-flavoured creamy, delicate fizz with the Champagne regions foundation varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier."John Fordham, Sunday Telegraph (14/Feb/2010)
