“Pretty…fleshy and bright, stacked with kirsch and red berry fruitiness but an undertow of stone fruit, creaminess, a sour-sweet finish and some savouriness too. Good, vivid fizz. Complex expression of sparkling.” ~ Mike Bennie in Wine Front
“The wine has considerable weight. Like it seems heavy on the palate. Like some kind of burnished liquid gold. Then a cheeky, gentle, persistent fizz lifts that weight and turns the gravity off. Joy bounces off the top of your mouth, but the good feels go straight on up through the mixing deck. It’s magic.
Unlike most of these bottle-fermented sparkling wines, this one is neither cloudy nor explosive. But it gives more Sgt. Pepper’s Magical Mystery Tour per sip than nearly everything else I know.
Natural? Like that moody, more wintry Lobo, this wine is the work of methodical, respectful, natural-born genius with an acute scientific curiosity. Genius? Sure. If it wasn’t there’d be a helluva lot more of it.” Phillip White – Drinkster
