Wine of the Week AU

Delamere Vineyard Cuvée Pinot Noir Chardonnay NV, Tasmania, AUD $35

There is so much to love about this quality Tasmanian bubbly, including its arty new label! Firstly, it is incredibly refreshing and aromatic, with notes of citrus, ripe apple and cracked wheat. Secondly, it has excellent composure and balance. And thirdly, the bubbles are fine, and the palate is long. Being a pinot dominant blend, and with the inclusion of a good proportion of reserve wine, it has great flavour intensity too. A top buy for the looming festive season. (Cork)
