A nice substitute for Champagne at half the price

Description: Deep straw in colour with a medium intense nose and fine mousse. This wine features lightly toasted oak, brioche, green apple, pear, honeydew melon, strawberry, lemon tart and honeysuckle on the nose. Medium body with good acidity and a good length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: Méthode Tasmanoise is a play on words for their connection to Champagne and to the same style they produce.

Drink now or in the next 5-7 of years on its own or pair it with Pistachio-Crusted Scallops.
