NV Tanzanite Brut Method Cap Classique - 90 PTS - IWR

iwinereview"This is a richly flavored sparkler showing complex notes of brioche, apple, and a hint of clementine. It’s bone dry on the finish with lingering toasty lees notes. A blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir aged 24+ months on the lees. The winemaker is Stellenbosch enology grad Melanie van der Merwe who made sparkling wine for 11 years at Distell before starting her own brand."

NV Tanzanite Brut Method Cap Classique - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"A blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, the NV Brut begins with biscuity aromas followed by green apple, citrus blossoms and lees. The palate is focused with precision and finesse and shows that the winemaker has taken a lot of time and effort to create this wine. Bright, energetic acidity livens up the mid-palate, and the mousse is firm with a soft nuttiness from the autolytic characteristic. The finish is long and subtly spicy with and lingers with notes of sweet brioche and cashew butter, as the wine spent two years on the lees. - Anthony Mueller"

gilbert et gaillard international challenge 2020 gold 92 pts medal"Light golden straw. Biscuit and stone fruit on the nose with subtle nuttyness. Fresh and fruit-forward on the palate with a full and creamy aftertaste. A fine mousse and lengthy finish. Lemon drops and lime cordial. A fine wine that will age well."
