Wine Reviews

WINESTATE MAGAZINE - OTAGO TASTING

5 STARS XXXXX

QUARTZ REEF METHODE TRADITIONNELLE VINTAGE 2012

Powerful aromas of freshly buttered brown bread and pastry crust confirm this wine spent an extended time en tirage. The palate is concentrated, focused yet beautifully delicate with a creamy, fine mousse. Strong acid line keeps the whole show on the road and the finish is taut and dry. A super example of cool climate sparkling wine.
