Ninth Island Sparkling NV

A casual catch up with friends saw this appear on the table when one of them brought it along. The looks of disappointment were clear as glasses of this were handed out and as one said, "Ordinary for the money you pay." Admittedly, I haven't had a look at this drop for a while but I came to the same sad conclusion.

Sour apple, zesty lemon and citrus dominant. Dry and crisp to finish, it seemed a little thin on fruit with lashings of creaminess adding weight. Sour apple sneaks up again on the finish.

I couldn't finish the glass off and there's plenty of others at the price point I'd go for instead.
