NV Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir
Style: Uncomplicated, fresh and easy-drinking.
The inspiration: We wanted to make a sparkling for all occasions. It's always time for bubbles!
Fruit is machine picked at night to ensure cooler temperatures and retain fruit aromatics. The fruit is gently pressed to minimise phenolics and maximise fruit flavour and delicacy. The wine undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation and remains on lees before it is stabilised pre-bottling.
The palate is fruit driven and fresh with added layers of cream and softness from malolactic fermentation and time on lees. Creamy with a biscuity finish and a delicate bead.
Cellaring: This wine is drinking well now however it will evolve into a more tertiary and complex style in the bottle for up to five years.
Food pairing: Think palate cleansing here so don’t skimp on the strong, salty or creamy finger nibbles. All the naughty but nice things…paté or potato chips anyone? Also consider raw seafood like oysters and sashimi-style everything.
