Expert Review:
James Halliday-92 Points Extended skin contact; matured on lees at least 40 months; 8.5g/L dosage. Méthode traditionally. Disgorged Jan '21. Medium salmon/copper hue. 100% pinot noir is an exciting new twist for a house built resolutely on chardonnay. The affable mood of this variety delivers fresh, defined pomegranate and red cherry fruit, contrasting with the cool tension of Piper's River in strawberry hull and pink grapefruit. Fine phenolic/tannin bite brings firmness to the finish, which the toasty depth and creamy complexity of lees age go some way toward softening and calming. Otherwise, a style of elegance, refinement and effortless persistence. Tyson Stelzer, James Halliday Wine Companion 2022, 13 August, 2021. Established in 1986 on the site of a dairy farm in north-east Tasmania, Clover Hill's rich soil, natural sloping amphitheatre and maritime cool climate provide ideal conditions for the production of world class sparkling wines that rival the great houses of Champagne.

As Tasmania's premier sparkling house, Clover Hill winemakers consistently craft estate-grown wines of the highest pedigree. They are dedicated to the harmonising union of the idyllic Tasmanian Pipers River terroir, the superior quality of traditional sparkling fruit and the elite méthode traditionnelle process.
