NV Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay

Comments

Very pale pink / salmon colour. The nose is showing some interesting nutty and yeasty characters with underlying strawberry fruit. On the palate this wine is light bodied but full flavoured with some great kiwi fruit and guava characters. Serve on any occasion.

Vinification Notes

Both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were picked at night. The grapes were then crushed and de-stemmed immediately to ensure minimum skin contact and phenolic extraction. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were fermented separately under cool conditions to ensure delicacy of the base wine, these base wines were then blended to obtain the desired characters. The base wine was re-fermented and left on lees for six months to maximise mouthfeel and complexity of the wine.
