Top Tassie sparkler

Stefano Lubiana Grande Vintage Méthode Traditionelle 2008, Tasmania, AUD $65

A complex, well-aged style of Tassie sparkling, with a full brassy colour and mellow toast, biscuit and roasted nut bouquet, which translates superbly to the rich, full-flavoured palate. The acidity is seamless and it finishes long and appetisingly dry. A good food wine. (Cork)
