Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Pale straw color with a persistent flow of fine bubbles. The nose is filled with the scents of ripe green apple with star fruit, lime zest and mineral. The palate is in full accord with the nose delivering a vibrant fruit centric core with loads of crisp mineral and citrus notes. Great Value (Jun 2014)
Wine Spectator 87 points - Soft, round and tasty, with delicate watermelon, strawberry and white pepper aromas and flavors, finishing with a fine texture. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. –HS (Oct 15 2004)
Wine Advocate 85 points - These two sparklers continue to be fine bargains. The wines are clean, have crisp, zesty fruit, good effervescence, and light-bodied, fruity finishes. (Apr 2003)
Nicely balanced, Brut is not too dry and not too sweet. This crisp and jazzy wine delivers delicate apple and citrus characteristics with a fresh, light toastiness.
