Brown Brothers Pinot Noir Chardonnay Pinot Meunier NV
This current release sparkling wine has an attractive pale green-gold colour with lifted aromas of green apples and citrus. One sip and the wine explodes in the mouth, with citrus flavours accompanied by a soft creaminess which provides delicateness and finishing with refreshing acidity.
A very enjoyable, uncomplicated bubbly that regularly impresses as top value for money. It combines attractive fruit with a modicum of serious, yeast derived champagne character and finishes with length and balance. Less sweet than many in its price league.
The high-altitude Whitlands vineyard of Brown Brothers provides it with a continuous source of quality grapes, hence the consistency of this wine and the trophy and gold medal success of this particular bottling. Straw-green, it has considerable complexity on the bouquet and palate, with nutty brioche nuances; it finishes with energy and hence considerable length. 93 points James Halliday
Itâ€™s grown in the upper reaches of the King Valley. Itâ€™s modestly sweeter than I recall previous vintages being but it could well be my imagination. Regardless, itâ€™s immensely delicious. Yeast and apples and sweet pears. Clean, refreshing finish. Bloody beautiful drink. 91 points Winefront.com.au
As a non-vintage often the proportions of the three main sparkling varieties can change; currently it's more than half pinot noir (53 per cent) followed by 27 per cent chardonnay. It is one of Australia's best bargains....The flavour: Clean, fresh, long and tasty as hell, this sparkler has more than just red fruits and creamy palate; there are genuine elite yeasty elements and lovely mineral textures.

As reliable as clockwork, this bottle fermented non vintage blend delivers a complete and all round style of sparkling that balances freshness with gentle complexity and just enough toasty autolysis. Also, there are red fruits, lemon citrus, melons and freshly sliced mushrooms. The palate delivers fine, zesty, acid crunch, and there are savoury layers running through the finish. Top value. 92 points Nick Stock the Fine Wine Guide
