A sparkling wine that spends 6 years on lees with the blend consisting of wines from 2012, 2013 and 2014. The nose display clear autolytic notes of yeasty lees, nuts and some aged honey. Creamy palate backed up with crisp, zesty acidity. Lovely texture, in what is a medium bodied wine with a lively, but not overdone mousse. Long finish in this top Australian sparkling wine
Freycinet Vineyard Radenti R3, Tasmania
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
