Tyson Stelzer’s Australian Sparkling Wine Report 2017 + 2018

“92 points”

“Based on the ’11 vintage; 5 years on lees; 2nd disgorgement. Cracked wheat and grapefruit, red apple and honey. This is zesty, intense, complex and honeyed at once.  It’s perhaps a little too grippy on the finish, but there’s much to be impressed by here.”
Campbell Mattinson, Wine Companion 2019

“92 points”

“Excellent vitality of citrus zest and red-apple fruit, retaining impressive primary integrity and vibrancy even after almost five years of lees age.  Time has built subtle almond meal and honey complexity, yet upholding surprising primary character for its age yet with the lovely silky mouthfeel of long lees age.   Backward, lively and ageing impressively.  A triumph for a first release.”
Tyson Stelzer, WBM, March/April 2017

Top Australian Sparkling Wines

“(…) is based on the 2015 vintage, with various reserve wines.  It starts with a fine nose, showing ripe apple and nice complexity, plus a hint of aldehyde.  Lacey thought the flavours were “rich, honeyed and mouth-filling, with a pithy texture”.  That texture adds to the dry finish but there’s deft use of dosage to match it and the length is good. I loved its depth of flavour and balance. It was the best wine of show at the recent Orange Wine Show.”
Nick Bulleid MW, Gourmet Traveller Wine, Panel tasting, December/January 2019
