PRE-ARRIVAL: Sparkling White NV – Black Market Deal #33248
- Crisp, fine
- Adelaide Hills
From one of the premier wineries of the Adelaide Hills, this bubbly represents value bordering on the absurd. One look at the producer’s website will show you just how dedicated they are to making fine Aussie bubbles.
Made from pinot and chardy grown at elevation, it’s singing with lively acidity and softly sensual strawberry and citrus notes. There’s a touch of creaminess from extended time on lees and partial malolactic fermentation, but it’s still an incredibly fresh wine. At this price, you hardly need an excuse to pop the cork, making it all the more enjoyable in our book. Drink on any occasion when you’d reach for Champagne, and don’t be shy about cracking out a few!

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
