|Wine: DAOSA BLANC DE BLANCS 2012|
|Region: Adelaide Hills|
|Tasting Note: An amazing wine with lovely brioche yeasty notes on the nose, like standing in a bakers on a Saturday morning. There is a slight hint of vanilla also making each mouthful seem like you are about to bite into a custard pastry. Unsurprisingly this wine was five years on lees before being disgorged. At 6g/L dosage this is as dry as they come which only helps to add to the flavour and complexity. A very generous wine it offers crisp green apples and lots of texture on the palate. An effervescent bead creates a soft mousse, which almost tickles.
This is a beautiful wine, if you have not tried it…you should.
In my mind this is the best or one of the best vintage Blancs de Blancs on the market in Australia and can easily hold its own against most NV Champagnes. I would also suggest that at $54 it is a value proposition.
