Clover Hill Sparkling 2006

Clover Hill's 2006 sparkling had a pleasant aroma of citrus and minerals.  The palate revealed citrusy fruit with a touch of honey, and a pleasant mousse.  It was generally ok, but a little bit too sweet and fruity for my palate giving itself away immediately as a non-Champagne (not that it has to be Champagne like - it's just that I happen to like Champagne styles).  82 points.
