Really wild stuff here: not really an orange wine per se: more Rose’ colored and smelled like a Lambic w/out the sweetness. Had some spritzy effervescence and great juiciness. The nose was all over the place - intriguing & interesting, you’re sitting there trying to figure out what the hell is going on… dry finish begs for another sip. For $10, why not?! — 2 days ago
Amazing, fresh and bubbly. — a day ago
Proper fizz that. Much softer bubbles than prosecco, gorgeous Amber colour with peachy taste. Quaffed it up in the sun with Carol and Andy and The Meal. Good choice, especially on offer at £20 Waitrose (normally £27). — 7 days ago
My last of these. I experienced a bit of bottle variation with mine, some showing extremely fresh and others not so much. I’m a fan of Michael Cruse and enjoy his Ultramarine sparklers, and while it’s hard to compare UM to this, there are similarities and these are really delicious, especially for the money. This has a grower champagne like profile to it.
2017 base (released spring 2020), zero dosage. My first experience with this was during the dosage trial last year. Lots of fun to taste this wine at different levels. On previous bottles, it never came across as zero dosage, yet this final bottle had a pronounced carmex-like aromatic I get with many zero dosage sparklers. Oxidized aromatics and notes on the palate. This is apple everything...browned golden delicious apple, Apple strudel, apple spice. Mid palate is fairly rich with limestone, floral nuances, and a tart finish. Mousse here has died down some and the profile has become more vinous. I’d enjoy these sooner rather than later to capture the freshness. — 15 days ago
Lots of bright raspberry on the nose. Right away I get this strawberry soda note. I love the tartness on the mid palate. Finishes with some citrus zest and a hint of caramel. For sure a treat! — 3 days ago
Really fun and unexpected. Imagine it would be a crowd pleaser across tastes. Very drinkable. — 2 months ago
