Bellebonne Vintage Sparkling Wines
Winery : Natalie Fryar
The 'Queen of Bubbles', ex Jansz winemaker Natalie Fryar, has been working on her own projects for the last couple of years, as well as consulting to a number of vineyards including Kreglinger Sparkling House.
Bellebonne 2016 Vintage Rose: Made from 100% Tasmanian pinot noir, this stunning rose sparkling shows all the prowess of the maestra. Delicate pink with salmon blush and super fine bubbles, the sparkling looks beautiful in the glass. The aromas are an alluring meld of strawberry, marzipan, Turkish delight and buttery pastry. While the flavours are subtle, as befits a fine sparkling, there's a delicious roundness in the mouth set against a fine tannin finish with the barest touch of bitter pith.
Bellebonne 2015 Vintage Cuvee Sparkling: All Tasmanian fruit - 60% chardonnay, 40% pinot noir. Pale old gold. Complex and inviting aromas of strawberries and cream, lightly toasted hazelnuts, ginger spice and honeysuckle. It wraps around the palate with full, sweet fruit, the flavours opening up with each sip. It is a Tasmanian classic - full and soft, but also immensely refreshing. Irresistible.
