Conclusion: A series of surprises: Who would have thought that an excellent sparkling wine produced by "Methode Traditionelle" could be made in Malta? This is fantastic! Made entirely from Chardonnay grapes and having spent at least 12 to 24 months maturing on its yeast lees before disgorgement it shows great complexity. Even the price tag, retailing well under the main Champagne labels, is a great surprise. Well worth a try for your next celebration, or when you are in need of a little treat.
