Lambert Estate located on the western ridge of the Eden Valley, outside of Angaston. Onsite is a restaurant that grows their own vegies, along with a Retreat for guests to sleep on the estate. They’ve got a Tesla charger there as well. Anyways, back to the wine. No mention of grapes or method on the bottle, but a quick search on the website shows the 2019 is made from Pinot Noir (and still available for sale). There’s not a huge amount of Pinot Noir in the Barossa. There were 98 tonnes purchased in 2020, down from 131 in 2018.
Lambert Estate, The Prologue, Sparkling, Pinot Noir, Barossa, 2021
Very faint onion skin blush to the colour. Plentiful, fast moving bubbles. Light cherry Danish and strawberry fruit aromas with a fine yeasty dark undertone. Keen and tight through the red fruited body with an easy mousse and the darker leesy base. Doesn’t display a deep level of complexity, but a good burst of acidity emphasises this as a fine party-starter.
Rating: 17.25/20 (88/100)
