Wolf Blass Yellow Label Sparkling Brut 2010

It's generally rather handy to know of an acceptable fizz such as may be required for large gatherings.  This example from Barossa behemoth Wolf Blass incorporates the classic varieties for sparkling: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Hints of lemon curd on approach, flint and a bready/ leesy background.  Some fair persistence with a cut 'n' thrust sherbet attack, I found it quite aggressive and lively in the mouth, not a wine of finesse.  Some creaminess adds a little extra, but it falls some way of a good length.  Decent minerally texture, good aperitif style and at the current direct price of $11 p/b will serve well as mentioned.  87 - Average
