(2021) This Pinot Noir-dominated blend is always well-made and appealing. They call the production method "Tasmanois", a cheeky avoidance of the 'C' word which is not allowed in such traditional method sparkling wines. Aged on the lees for 18 months, it has a dosage of 9.5g/l. Pale salmon pink in colour, there is both strawberry and crunchy red apple on the nose, though there is a hint of biscuity richness in there too. In the mouth it is quite full with a cushion of mousse and fruit-forward, mouth-filling flavour. It does have some nuances of herbs and flowers in there, but the fruit and good acid balance drive forward, into a pleasingly crisp finish.
(2017) A more sweetie, bubblegummy character, with decent balance but a slightly sweet and soapy style for my liking. Good acid in the finish mind, maybe a bit of earthy breadth just to improve the picture.
