"Not just extra Brut, but extra delicious!"
"A beautifully made wine, strictly for the serious palate."
- Huon Hooke
"Yes, it is Tasmanian. The alcohol of 11.1% is as striking as it is unusual, the pale straw-green colour for a 6yo wine likewise. You need to be acid tolerant if just having a casual glass of fizz, otherwise Japanese (sushi et al) or fresh seafood is the way to go."
- James Halliday
"The perfect 2012 vintage offers the precision of a needle point as freshness flows to finesse. Delicate complexity is introduced late in the tradition of brilliant low dosage sparklings. Pristine apples, lemon blossom, sea spray and vanilla brioche flutter as aromas. The flavours are deliciously light. A creamy mousse offers deceptive weight and the acid is lively throughout. A hint of wild ferment funk and gossamer tannins announce it as Moorilla. This is a treasured vintage that will cellar for decades and is best served with food if drunk in its youth.
An aperitif-style sparkling with four years on lees. This is quite a structural wine in that the dosage has been kept to a minimum to highlight freshness of aroma and acidity, and to ensure a balance with chalky astringency and provide mid-palate creaminess. In youth, you’ll find the wine surprisingly fresh with alluring subtlety and complexity. However, this wine has been produced with the aim of long-term cellaring and will mature for a very long time. It will gradually acquire more toast and honey flavours with a softening on the mid-palate giving more roundness and generosity."
