“The most important thing is that it's spent four years on yeast lees. It’s really been that time on lees that’s made it the fantastic wine that it currently is. ”

Tasting Notes

This sparkling is a beautiful blend of Pinot Noir (53%) and Chardonnay (47%). The fruit was sourced from three different vineyard blocks, each harvested to optimise fruit and acid balance. The palate delivers welcoming crunchy apple, citrus and oyster shell.

In keeping with traditional production methods, this wine was aged for an extended period on lees – 48 months – which adds power to the flavour and creates a creamy, fine, mousse-like finish.



93 Points Campbell Mattinson , Wine Companion

“54/46% blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. 48 months on lees. Awash with yellow stone fruit and lemon curd flavours, cashew and crisp apple notes adding the extras. 6 years young; it has developed complexity but it feels as though it has plenty of time ahead of it. ”
