SMART TASSIE FIZZ - THE REAL REVIEW
"This is their first Tassie bubbly, a pinot noir chardonnay blend from the Tamar Valley, which spent 18 months on its lees. It has a straw to rose-gold colour reflecting the pinot noir grapes. There are pastry, apple-pie crust aromas, while the palate is soft and rounded, ample and yet fine, the finish pleasingly clean. Some peach and strawberry notes. There is sweetness from dosage but it leaves the palate pleasantly dry. A very smart wine." Huon Hooke - January 2021

TASTING NOTES

This Sparkling is a blend of 50/50 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It has delicate red fruits from Pinot Noir and some sweet lemon and oyster shell notes from the Chardonnay. All is balanced with fresh natural acidity and a clean finish. The wine has great length and, most importantly, an abundant fine mousse that lasts and lasts.

 

WINEMAKING

Our fruit was handpicked at early ripeness to produce a base wine of bright fruit flavour and taut structure – the perfect framework on which to build a sparkling wine of elegance and complexity. This Non-Vintage Cuvée was blended from wine of selected vintages, including a parcel of oaked reserve wine that provides complexity. The all-important secondary ferment, ageing on lees and dosage all occurred in the bottle you are now holding.

 

MATURATION

Following secondary fermentation, each bottle rested on lees for 18 months, allowing the wine to set a fine mousse and build flavour. The dosage was carefully adjusted to enhance complexity and add a touch of opulence to this dry style. This wine is from a small batch that was disgorged in November 2020.
