Matt Kramer writing in the Wine Spectator 26 October 2016

"Try to find sparkling wines from Australia's Tasmania Island. You'll be impressed, I promise. Maybe even astonished at the degree of refinement and sheer—dare I say it?—Champagne-like elegance of Tasmania sparkling wine."

 

APOGEE DELUXE VINTAGE BRUT 2014

$60 rrp approx | TASMANIA | DIAM | 12.0% ALCOHOL | DRINK 2018-2023 

46% pinot, 46% chardonnay, 8% meunier; 25% ferment in French oak barriques; aged 26 months on lees; 8.5g/L dosage; currently disgorged 26 March 2018

Presence, depth and character meet the cool tension of Piper's River in a cuvée of detail and personality. Pinot noir takes the lead in spicy red apple fruit, backed by the citrus crunch of chardonnay. Partial fermentation in old oak heightens spicy complexity and texture, while the lingering, cool acid line of northern Tasmania defines a long finish.

APOGEE DELUXE VINTAGE ROSÉ 2015

$ 75 RRP approx.| TASMANIA | DIAM | 12.3% ALCOHOL | DRINK 2018-2025  67% Pinot noir; 20% Chardonnay 13% Pinot Meunier-25% fermented in old oak casks; aged 27 months on lees;  currently disgorged 27 March 2018

"Piper's River pinot noir is the secret to many of Australia's most refined sparkling rosés and Andrew Pirie knows this as well as anyone.
