Mitchell Harris Sabre Vintage Sparkling 2013


This is a pretty serious sparkling wine from Mitchell Harris.  From the 2013 vintage, it is made "properly" (aka using the traditional method), is a blend of 75/25 chardonnay/pinot noir and spent 40 months on lees.  The fruit is from Macedon and the Pyrenees.  In the glass, the aroma is clean and reminds of lemons.  The palate is very dry in impression with a classic and fresh expression of lemon supplemented by coffee biscuit.  (Alc: 12%, Region: Macedon and Pyrenees, Victoria, Rating: Good to Very Good, Drink: now, Tasted: August, 2017, Source: Sample)
