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. 

 

Description

Vineyard Region: King Valley and Tumbarumba
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 13.0%
Colour: This current release sparkling wine has an attractive pale green-gold colour.
Aroma: Fresh, lively aromas of pear and apple.
Palate: The wine explodes in the mouth – a soft creamy feeling that is a direct result of the very fine bubble. The green apple flavours carry through to the palate with lemon citrus notes accompanied by the soft creaminess and a delicate and refreshing acid on the finish.
Peak Drinking: Until 2022

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%.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “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.” 

    94/100 

    Halliday Wine Companion 2020 12/08/2019

  2. “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.”
