With summer approaching we have been receiving some brillant press for our sparkling wines:

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Rose NV

"Gorgeous trout-pink colour with vibrant cherry blossom, strawberry shortcake and toasted bagel aromas. Clean and elegant, it boasts seductive spritz, textural complexity and impressively rich length of flavor. Made from 100 per cent Bendigo Pinot Noir, this is a sensational example. More please!"

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Vintage 2007

"Bendigo, Central Otago, New Zealand - from one of only two wineries that make methode traditionnelle; which is staggering since winemaker Rudi Bauer has proven just how well he makes - and Central Otago produces - wonderfully balanced, crisp bubbles that, dare I say it, emulates Champagne's fresh, zingy, drink-me qualities. This is 80% Chardonnay, 20 % Pinot Noir, bottle fermented and aged on lees for four years."

Millton Muskats @ Dawn Sparkling 2011

"Sherbet lemon, fresh grapes, orange blossom – it’s hard to know how they subdued this wine to get it into the bottle. Medium dry, bursting with flavour. Drink well chilled."
