Rod Phillips ****1/2 drink now, Jun 26/16

‘Joy’ is made from chardonnay, making it a blanc de blancs style and is made by the Champagne. The departure from champagne (apart from not being made there) is the closure: a crown cap, rather than a cork. After wrestling with a sparkling wine cork for several minutes before approaching this bottle, I was happy – Joyful, even – to open this so easily. But it would have been worth a struggle, as this is a really attractive sparkler. The fruit is well-defined and pure with some yeasty notes, the acidity is vibrant, and the bubbles are plentiful and rise in fine beads.

I love this wine. Consistently this Blanc de Blanc has me excited from when I pop the crown cap until it gets to my lips. The nose is bright and citrus, the aromas of Lemon and Orange with hints of Vanilla. The flavours on this wine bring orchard fruit to the party with lots of apple and subtle peach layered over the citrus. The finish is bright, crisp and clean. This continues to be one of the best values for sparkling wine on the market and easily out delivers it’s price.

A traditionally-made, 100% estate Chardonnay sparkling wine that lives up to its name — pure joy. The nose shows a balanced melange of pear, citrus, fresh baked bread and yeasty-toasty notes. It’s fresh and lively on the palate with a persistent bubble that highlights the pear, lime and lemon fruits that are bursting with flavour and vitality. This is a bubbly that is en pointe, with poise, balance and razor sharp acidity.

Remarkably toasty and robust — reminds me of Bollinger Champagne, but this has its own story. Toasted bread and crisp orchard fruit. Perfect as an aperitif or companion to shellfish or seafood.

Food pairings: shellfish, fried chicken, salads.
