When we visited the Blue Gables Vineyard cellar door earlier this year they were sold out of this sparkling wine made with Chardonnay and Pinot Gris grapes – I was guttered as I really wanted to try it!
Recently I came across a bottle of it at The Hunting Ground in Sale for $40 and I couldn’t resist. I have to admit, I thought the $40 price tag was a bit steep initially, however, after trying it, I’ll definitely be buying it again!
It’s a crisp silver colour in the glass with a wonderful clarity and teeny tiny bubbles. On the nose, I pick up whiffs of tropical fruits with a pinch of baking spice and a squeeze of lemon. In the mouth, it’s incredibly elegant and dry with crisp pears, a hint of almonds and refreshing lemon acidity dominating for me. Beautiful!
