Sugarloaf Ridge 2011 Lara Sparkling
Winery : Sugarloaf Ridge
Very pale gold with bright highlights. Fresh and sherbet-like musky rose floral notes and ripe lemon, along with delicate wild strawberry from the Pinot Noir dominance. Very lively, small bead with zesty acidity but this is softened by quite rich flavours of strawberry, honey, sweet mandarin and marzipan on the finish. A great aperitif-style sparkling wine without being too dry.
Sugarloaf Ridge is at Carlton River in Tasmania's south. 'Lara' sparkling is a much-acclaimed Tasmanian sparkling wine, winning gold medals at Tasmanian Wine Shows
