NV Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay

Comments

The wine is a light straw with a hint of pink. The nose has lifted strawberries with complex creamy characters. The palate is medium bodied with rich, sweet roasted nuts and biscuit characters. Combined with the great sugar-acid balance this wine finishes long with clean toasty flavours.

Vinification Notes

Both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were picked at night to ensure freshness. The grapes were then crushed and de-stemmed immediately to ensure minimum skin contact and phenolic extraction. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were then fermented in separate batches, under cool conditions to ensure delicacy of the base wine, before being blended together to develop the desired flavours. Base wine from previous vintages was then added to increase complexity before re-fermenting and being left on lees for 6 months to maximise mouthfeel and complexity of the wine.
