Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

2012 vintage tasted Dec 2015. Orchard fruit, crisp green apple and great minerality. Enjoy this traditional method bubbly with almost anything. Wonderful acidity, fine bubbles, vibrant on the palate. Ready to enjoy now.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

This sparkling is made of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Fine bubble, Clear golden color.

Aromas of green apple, toasted hazelnut, toasted bread, lemon and pear.

The wine is fresh, balanced and the finish is short to medium.

Try it with an antipasto.

Serve it at 5-6 degrees.

Ready to drink now.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A refreshing moussey blend of stone fruit, lemon/lime, apple, a hint of fresh red cherry and buttery toast. Luscious zippy acidity, medium-short finish, and yes, brut dry. Overall, this sparkling is pretty good bang for your buck!
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Wolf Blass' Gold Label vintage sparkling wine is reminiscent of premium Champagne, yet sourced from the other side of the world - Adelaide Hills, Australia to be exact. This tasty bubbly is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot from iconic Australian producer Wolf Blass. Ideal when paired with rich and fatty dishes, this premium vintage Australian bubbly would also be great when toasting special moments in your life. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Apple and lemon aromas and flavors with a bit of herb and a hint of peach on the finish.
Sean O'Regan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale gold with a fine mouse in this Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sparkler, the nose boasts toasty, yeasty and mineral notes to buffer the apple citrus profile. Vibrant on the palate with repeating toasty, yeasty notes along with apple, green pear and lemon citrus.
A great wine to start off the evening meal. Tasted April 2015
Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:

This sparkling has aromas of red apple, brunt sugar, honey and lemon. Flavours very much the same as aromas, red apple, vanilla and honey.
