2014 Matilda Sparkling
Pale straw with salmon blush.
Lifted notes of berries, and bright red fruit aromas, followed by notes of brioche and nougat.
Fine persistent mousse, with obvious bready autolysis, and red fruit pinot noir influence, balanced by grapefruit acidity and a long, dry finish.
A dry aperitif style, to be enjoyed with food over the next few years.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
93 points, 2019 Halliday Wine Companion - 100% pinot noir, 36 months on lees, dosage 8g/l, disgorged Aug '17. The pale grey-pink is what English wine writers used to describe as partridge eye. The cold continental climate of Macedon (and some assured winemaking) guarantees a wine that will flourish with several more years under cork, its red berry pinot varietal base becoming ever more flowery and regent.
