Jim,

Considering that Veuve Clicquot owns Cloudy Bay, and Deutz is in
partnership with NZs largest producer, Montana (and part of the Pernod
Ricard Group) and that NZ (in general) and Marlborough (in particular)
is the southern hemisphere's only true cool climate wine producer, why
should you be surprised.

The UK discovered Lindauer many years ago, where it remains one of the
best selling, best priced traditional method sparklers.
