Serious Yarra fizz is this Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Blanc de Blancs 2015. Spends 52 months on lees, the juice wild fermented in tank and cask.
Classy, full-tilt, table-wine-with-bubbles style (which I like). Acidity is on the edge of sparkling wine (ie a little soft), but the length is very good. Quite an expressive style and enjoyable, even if its a little broad, and classy all the way.
I could drain a bottle of this easy – one of the best Aussie fizz in the full and rich mode I’ve had in ages. Almost 94pts too. Best drinking: now. 18/20, 93/100. 12.5%, $38. Oakridge website. Would I buy it? Sure would.
