Bay of Fires Sparkling Pinot and Chardonnay Cuvée is one of the nicest Australian sparkling drops you can find.

Whether you’re drinking sparkling or proper champagne, the choice of beverage can be hit and miss. Delightfully dry, subtly sweet, or curious enough to tantalise your tastebuds, the sparkling varieties of wine can vary wildly, and remind you whether you’re drinking something excellent or easy to forget very quickly.

More often than not, this drinker finds them in the latter category.

There is clearly a difference between great sparkling and everything else that falls into another category, but the drop we’re reviewing today is actually in the first one.

Bay of Fires’ sparkling pinot and chardonnay blend is brilliant. It’s so good, it may well have me try more types of sparkling if only to see whether I can find something this good again.

Dry yet drinkable, there’s a distinct feeling of stone fruits and citrus in this drop, which bubbles on the tongue beautifully.

Produced by Tasmania’s Bay of Fires Wines, but almost impossible to find bottles of, I traded some Qantas points for a box of six knowing full well a new baby was likely going to keep us grounded for some time, and my Frequent Flyer points could be spent doing something else I enjoy: drinking fine wines.

We’d experienced Bay of Fires Pinot at a friend’s place before, and so I figured this was worth a go. And it damn well was.

I’m not normally a sparkling drinker, but this is one drop you’ll always remember.

Crisp, easy to drink, and totally deserving of any opportunity to imbibe, the Bay of Fires Sparkling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Cuvee was just delightful, and a drink I’ll be choosing the right times to drink again and again.

Will you remember this drink tomorrow morning?

You'll not only remember this Bay of Fires sparkling tomorrow, you'll want to buy a good six or twelve bottles. We sure did. It's that bloody good.
