Picked from our single vineyard chardonnay sites here in the Hunter Valley. We use the traditional method to make our sparkling chardonnay that is consistent with the famous style of the Champagne region.
We pick the chardonnay at lower baume & high acidity to encourage bright & crisp green apple notes. A second fermentation in the bottle creates the fine bead & creamy texture. We leave the chardonnay on lees for 12 months to build complexity & add those toasty, brioche notes.
Excellent growing conditions and picking season in 2019 led to healthy vines & good yields. Our Sparkling Chardonnay is made only in great vintages & laid down for a further 12 months after bottling to further add layers of biscuity notes.
The fine structure and natural acidity gives the wine the potential to age for 5-10 years. However, after one sip we believe this wine will last a maximum of three months in your wine collection.
Sparkling Chardonnay can match a variety of cuisines, or simply be enjoyed as an aperitif!
Love seafood? Pair with oysters, scallops, prawns and lobster.
