Lovely bubbly.

Despite producing 350 000 cases of own label wine a year, Darling Cellars remains resolutely low profile. The top end wines termed Limited Releases are pretty nifty however and not to be overlooked. I’ve written before about the excellent wine blend called Lime Kilns (see here) and yesterday drank the Méthode Cap Classique Blanc de Blanc Brut 2008, which was also very impressive. 20 months on the lees, this wine shows good focus with pure citrus fruit upfront, moderate acidity, a creamy mousse and a pleasantly savoury finish – a place for everything and everything in its place. Score: 16/20.
