Deviation Road Loftia Vintage Brut 2012

I was impressed by this sparkling wine from Deviation Road in the Adelaide Hills.  Sufficiently so that I would rank it as being among the small group of producers fashioning first rate sparkling wines on Australian soil.  A blend of 70% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay, the aromatics of the 2012 vintage tasted here remind of yeast, lemon and toast.  The palate is dry, the acidity good and that yeasty character continued.  A great find.  Good to Very Good
