Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

My personal thought is that Kim Crawford creates great value wines. This sparkling wine made in the traditional method is no exception. Named after Felicity Nelson who is a host at their vineyard, and who's nickname is "Fizz" because of her bubbly and vivacious manner this bubbly is aptly named. Aromas of baked apples and brioche, with lots of zesty citrus notes. Good minerality and bright acidity. If you want to impress your guests at 1/2 the cost of a decent champagne uncork this and hide the bottle. Tasted Oct. 2/2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crisp, 'moussey'and refreshing! Aromas are moderate but flavours are deeply concentrated. The palate shows high notes of green apples, lemon and grapefruit. This bubbly is mouthwatering, light bodied and bone dry with a clean finish. Sidenote to the saberistas... it is super bubbly! You will definitely enjoy whacking the top off this one.
