4.5 Stars - Sam Kim (under original label)


This is a quality New Zealand sparkling wine, made from 100% Chardonnay, sourced from select Gisborne vineyards.

We reckon this is a STONKINGLY GOOD value Blanc de Blanc.  Fresh fruit driven aromas balanced citrus flavours and a beautiful toasty background. Delicate bubbles and a dry finish. Well made and classy

The perfect bubbly to match with a wide range of food or drink or any occasion really.  Better than a lot with a fancy front label!

OK, I was a little disconcerted by the beer bottle-style closure, but this is a good wee bubbles and at ten bucks a bottle is a real bargain.  It's a fairly light party style wine, I didn't food match (except maybe with chips and dip).  We threw our bottles of this in the ice barrel with the beers at a BBQ, with a beer bottle opener tied to the side - so the weird closure actually worked really well in this context.

I was surprised when receiving the wine to find the bottles were capped (like beer )rather than a fancy cork & wrapping. Seemed to the eye "cheap".Opened the wine with some intrepidation but found the wine very agreeable to drink. & if one can get past the cap, would buy again.

Excellent value NZ bubbles and a real nice drop at that. I'm happy to bring a bottle or two out when friends come round and so far no ones complained.

OK for glugging on a hot afternoon but not much character. Still, it was only ten bucks ...

Wow, what a surprize!  This wine packs a punch way greater than its price.  A bit sweet maybe, but delicious with it, sort of nutty, a bit of nougat? Taste and value for money...  5 stars.  ADS

Nice and clear on the palate. Subtle citrus. Personally I found it pleasant, others drinking it loved it. I found it disconcerting that it had crown caps though, hard to get my head around that.

Exceptional value.  And everything that is said about it in the description. Mouthwatering and well-bodied balanced blanc de blanc. It has become my wife's favourite bubbly. Every time I go to reorder I worry about telling her there isn't any left.  So for her sake (and my peace of mind) please order sparingly as I dread the screams of despair when I eventually have to tell her it has all gone!

A $10 bottle of bubbles that is surprisingly good! I bought it for the Aunties, but must admit to hiding a couple of bottles away after my first taste. Slightly sweeter than I would normally like, but in no way is this one of those horrible sickly cheap bottles of plonk - this is great! Good enough for me to purchase more for the christmas break, and hopefully beyond.
