Halliday Wine Companion "Bollinger is second only to Krug with the depth and complexity of its reserve. The accent is firmly on pinot noir from Premier and Grand Cru sources. Small wonder it is of towering power and complexity capable of handling any food match. Exceptional bargain."

James Suckling "Lots of biscuit aromas and a wide spectrum of fresh-citrus, candied-citrus, red-apple and red-berry notes. Mouth-filling creaminess, plus quite an imposing presence and powerful structure for an NV Brut. Long, citrus and chalky finish that’s very clean and properly dry. 60% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay, 10% pinot meunier. Almost 20% barrel fermented and 62% reserve wines."

Decanter "..Excellent fine mousse, dry and refreshing....Delicate aromas of spiced baked apples, pear, quince, a touch of raspberry and notes of brioche and biscuits. "

Wine Spectator "This harmonious Champagne is wonderfully vibrant as it dances across the palate, with the satinlike mousse carrying flavors of white cherry, Marcona almond and ground coffee that show accents of candied kumquat, ginger, aromatic verbena and graphite. A streak of racy salinity emerges on mouthwatering finish. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier."

Gilbert & Gaillard "A successful, racy Champagne that lingers on the palate...Beautiful, brilliant, clear light gold. Delicate nose offering up fruity and biscuit accents. The palate is fleshy, fresh and delivers more of the same compelling, chiselled aromas."

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "Dominated, as always, by Pinot Noir and with wood fermentation and aging, this Champagne has a great poise between freshness and richness. It is intense and ripe, with apple and minerality coming together."

Vinum Wine Magazine "Superb, seductive bouquet of pastries, spices and exotic fruits; elegant attack, slim but dense development, has flesh, great elegance and finesse and ideal length; belongs again to the best Brut of Champagne."

Bollinger is perhaps one of the most recognisable French Champagne houses internationally. Founded in 1829 in Champagne, France, Bollinger has continuously created prestigious champagnes with a unique powerful character that is distinguished by their elegance and complexity; nothing less than excellence is permitted. It is because of this pursuit of perfection that Bollingers has been awarded the Royal Warrant since 1884.

The Bollinger vineyard covers 179 hectares, most of which are classified Grand or Premier cru. Pinot Noir predominates, a demanding grape variety with an intense character which forms the backbone of the Bollinger style. Continuity of style is ensured by an exceptional collection of over 800,000 reserve magnums, making Bollinger the only champagne House with such a wide and precise palette of aromas for their blends. As a guarantee of supreme quality, the best crus are vinified in wood thanks to a stock of 4,000 small, aged casks. Bollinger lets its wines mature for twice as long as the appellation requirement. This is not out of vanity, but because a great wine needs the luxury of time to develop its full character.

The Champagne region lies at the northern edge of the world's vineyard-growing areas, with lower average temperatures than any other French wine region. In this kind of cool climate, the growing season is rarely warm enough to ripen grapes to the levels required for standard winemaking. Even in temperate years, Champagne's grapes still bear the hallmark acidity of a marginal climate, and it was only the discovery of secondary fermentation that provided a wine style capable of harnessing – and even embracing – this tartness.

Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world, produced in the region of Champagne in France. Synonymous with celebration, champagne is typically produced from a few specific varieties of grapes: pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier. With effervescent flavors of citrus, almond, and apple, champagne comes in varying levels of sweetness and has a moderate amount of alcohol. The most treasured Champagnes age for a minimum of 3 years.

The Champagne region is located 140 kilometres from Paris, France. While the vines in this region have been producing wine since the Roman era, it is only in the past couple of hundred years that winemakers began producing Champagne using méthode champenoise - the complex method that produces the style of Champagne the world knows and loves today. Another important component of the production of champagne is the chalk and limestone soils which dominate the Champagne region. Vines grown in these conditions result in wines that are high in acidity - a key component to making good sparkling wine. Champagne's northerly location - about as north as grapes can ripen - also allow for higher acidity and lower alcohol levels which are also very important for producing quality sparkling wine.

1 x Mojo Moscato NV ~ South Australia, Australia

Marty O'Flaherty, Winemaker "I created this Moscato in the same manner as the genuine Piedmontese Moscato that I grew to appreciate whilst working in Italy.

I sourced the best Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains grapes I could find, harvested at the first sign of that distinctive floral musky punch. The fruit was handled as gently as possible as was the juice in order to retain as much aromatic fruit character as possible.

Moscato wine is famous for its sweet flavours of peaches and orange blossom. The word Moscato is Italian name for one of the oldest wine grapes in the world Muscat Blanc. Moscato are light-bodied wines with tropical fruit flavours, light bubbles and low alcohol. Perfect on its own or paired with Asian food, fish, pork and chicken.

Cold fermentation in pressure tank further enhanced these unique volatile characters with the ferment arrested at the traditional 5.5% v/v alcohol (permitted by law for traditional Moscato D’Asti). Being a tank ferment the spritz in the bottle is that created from the ferment in turn giving distinct mouthfeel and texture. I am sure it will be a very popular little gem, especially come summertime. Salute!" RockBare Wines completed its first vintage in 2000.

1 x TarraWarra Estate Chardonnay 2019 - Yarra Valley, Australia

Bronze, International Wine Challenge 2019
93/100 Halliday Wine Companion
5-star Winery – Halliday Wine Companion

Sunday Telegraph “For long one of the Yarra Valley's [Australia] signature chardonnays, the style continues to be tweaked by winemaker Clare Halloran to ensure its continued rousing mouthfeel, freshness and subtle marriage of oak. Very much a fruit-driven explosion of chardonnay's finest attributes, all moulded with great balance and care.”

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion “A racy, fresh and drink-now style that's lightly spiced, citrussy with some complexing sulphides and creamy lees. Lithe and long with a fine line of natural acidity. A good drink.”

Wine Companion "There's really fine, tangy acidity throughout and nothing is out of amalgam of flavours, but is more citrus-toned and spiced with ginger."

Huan Hooke, The Real Review "Light to very light straw colour, looks and smells backward. Shaved almond and floral nuances."

International Wine Challenge “Attractive struck match nose with an easy-drinking creamy stone fruit palate.”

The Winemaker “The wine has grapefruit and lemon zest aromas with underlying notes of cashew nuts. The tight palate reflects the season, with texture derived from 10 months on lees and a lovely drive with the persistence of flavour. With oak and tank maturation, the wine shows an elegant complexity with appealing freshness.”

TarraWarra Estate has some of the Yarra Valley's oldest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, and is considered one of the region's foremost wineries. Located in one of Australia's best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir growing regions, Tarrawarra Estate is estate is rated by top Australian wine critic, James Halliday as “one of the top-tier wineries in the Yarra Valley”. It is best known for its exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
