Pale gold color with copious pearly bubbles. The wine has toasty, nutty aromas with a pleasing earthiness that's almost like Brie and a flowery top-note. It's nutty on the palate, with toasty brioche notes and a smooth, even mousse. Very elegant and rounded. 12% abv | $45 (sample)

Made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Golden straw with stone fruit aromas and yeasty notes. On the palate peach and apple flavors with a nutty toasty character. Well balanced on s long finish ending with chalky mineral tones.

Superb balance. Crisp, mouth watering acidity and distinct autolytic flavors. Bread and a hint of flowers.

For mine, this is the pick of the Australian "cheapie" options for champagne - apples on the nose and palate - simple but the best value for money in this bracket
