Barringwood is setting the pace for north-western Tasmanian sparkling, and its flagship celebrates a compelling and seamless contrast between bright, vibrant Tasmanian chardonnay and more creamy texture and complexity that might be expected from four years lees age. Spicy pear, apple and grapefruit glide long and focused amidst layers of brioche, mixed spice, and the beginnings of fruit mince spice. Wonderful drive and fantastic line and length mark out a finish driven by mouth-watering acidity like only Tasmania can create. Barringwood’s finest work yet.
