Mitchell Harris Sabre Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2014, Macedon Ranges & Pyrenees, AUD $45
This is a superb sparkling wine in a richer, more generous style. With a light to mid-yellow colour and an overtly spicy, rich-fruit bouquet, it’s full-bodied and has a long carry with a firm, dry, well-balanced finish. It spent 39 months on lees and has a low 4 grams/litre dosage.
