TASTING NOTE: The best bubbly, and indeed the best wine period to have emerged thus far from Megalomaniac, this salmon coloured sparkler shows substantial autolysis character (smoky-leesy-toasty notes) alongside ripe red fruit flavours. The finish is long. Clean, classy wine. Score - 92 (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, July 21, 2019) Price $ 34.95
