This lively and refreshing sparkling wine achieves the perfect balance with brightly-flavoured green apple and citrus notes.
Made in the classic French Methode Traditionnelle style to acquire its delicate bubbles and soft creaminess on the finish.

Recommended food pairings: This wine makes an ideal aperitif or as an accompaniment to a range of appetisers. Delightful with natural oysters drizzled with a lemon juice. It would also be ideal with smoked salmon and caviar blinis. Try it with shallow fried calamari with a lemon and dill mayonnaise.
Growing Conditions: This wine is a blend of different parcels of Pinot Noir 55%, Chardonnay 33% & Pinot Meunier 12%, from cool climate vineyards in the King Valley and Tumbarumba. All fruit was hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed to minimise contact between the juice and the grape skins and seeds.
Winemaker: Cate Looney
Winemaking notes: 100% of the fruit underwent malolactic fermentation and after vintage the various wines were assembled and assessed. The selected blend then underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine spent three and a half years on yeast lees to add complexity and allow greater merging of aged and yeast autolysis characters. It was then disgorged, liqueured and bottled with an alcohol level of 13%. Vegan-friendly.

“Light straw with bright fruit and yeasty complexity vying for attention. Green apple, white stone fruit, yeast buns, a touch of meaty pinot and perhaps a hint of aldehyde adding that complexity. And there’s a depth to flavours as well. Sophisticated NV.”

“A blend of 57% pinot noir, 33% chardonnay and 10% pinot meunier, all parcels whole-bunch pressed, 2 years on lees prior to disgorgement. Excellent balance and length, with the contrasting fruit flavours complexed by the time on lees. Can’t be faulted.”

“One of the best examples of this blend in Aus. Always comes out in the top group and this is another outstanding example. Such a compelling mix of meaty game and fresh apple-y citrus. Terrific.”

“Méthode Traditionnelle. Quite developed with stone fruits, toasted bread, biscuit, oatmeal, macaroon characters that bring good depth and breadth to both the bouquet and palate. Classy interplay between fruit and bottle-ferment complexity. Soft and creamy. Good value.”
