Moorilla 2013 Muse Extra Brut Sparkling Wine

Moorilla 2013 Muse Brut and Sabre“Muse is wine of the old world made in the new—a Tasmanian expression of classic European winemaking. These wines exude texture, integration and complexity.

It received 94 points from James Halliday and 92 points from Huon Hooke.
