    November 13, 2021 - Not a bad Tassie sparkling. Lacks the complexity on nose and palate of the better Tassie vintage sparklers. This is a very linear, very fruit based bubbly, tastes more like a straight young chardonnay bubbly . No real yeast or lees character. But makes a great aperitif style bubbly. Would be excellent with oysters.

    December 31, 2018 - 6 Tasmania wineries Dec-19; 12/27/2018-1/2/2019 (Tasmania): {11.1%, A$54} With common ownership, and no fizz in the Domaine A portfolio, I guess it makes sense to offer this premium fizz at the cellar door. Four years on lees, with two in the bottle post-disgorgement. No malo. This is as dry as you get. Lightly developing nose of nut and grapefruit with a mild cheesy twist on the end. The palate passes on a hint of the cheese note, laced with orange pith and grapefruit. It’s very high in acid and really makes the mouth water, but it all seems in balance, with creamily-textured medium-sized bubbles. Not much yeast evident for the sur lees; maybe that’s a function of the acid. Medium long finish. Seems like it needs another decade of cellaring. Decent value, in context.
