Pirie Sparkling NV


Perhaps one of the reasons I like this fizz is that I am a Cheezel lover. Big time. Cheezels were the first thing that came to mind when I smelt this wine. Don’t worry though, no cheezels were harmed in the production of this wine. I have it on good authority that the smell is a product of the yeast that they use. However, there is plenty else to love about this wine and perhaps my nose is more attuned to the cheezel factor than most given my love of them.

There are also apples, buttery shortbread, lemon, nougat and some freshly baked bread. The bubbles are very finely textured and meld with the soft acid to keep the wine refreshing. It is a good Tassie fizz that keeps on delivering each mouthful. And it is good with food….

Jean-Paul et Benoit Droin Chablis 2012

droin chablisThis wine has all the hallmarks of a well made Chablis. Smoky limestone and flint finds a place amongst green apple and lemon citrus. Light bodied, finely wrought fruit that drives along the palate and leaves a long and tangy finish.

A lively chardonnay with finesse and a backbone. Enjoy!
