Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 93 Points (NV)
This chardonnay-dominant, traditional-method sparkling wine spends two years on lees before being disgorged. Although pinot noir occupies a minority role in the blend, it asserts itself with rich chocolate-like flavours and added palate weight. A portion of the base wine is held in large oak vats and small French oak barriques to give added complexity from the decomposing yeast lees and the oak. The wine is crisp and fresh with apple-like chardonnay flavours evident. They've got the dosage perfectly right - it's dry, but not searing dry

Robert Parker (RP) : 88 Points (NV)
The NV Pelorus shows bright citrus, golden delicious apple and white blossom aromas with hints of baking bread. It is a crisp and clean sparkling white with fine bubbles and great balance on a zesty finish. It’s designed to be drunk now, though it should easily hold in bottle for 2-3 years+.

Stephen Tanzer (ST) : 88 Points (NV)
Leesy aromas of nuts and vanilla. Ripe, sweet and rich; a distinctly wine-like sparkler, with good complexity. Deep flavors of apple and nuts.
