From one of Australia’s finest sparkling wine regions, this excellent wine shows classic citrus and melon fruit, complex earthy and bready notes and a crisp lingering finish.
Fruit was sourced from Tumbarumba, Coppabella Vineyard and harvested in March from several key sites.
After picking, the fruit (60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir) was gently pressed to stainless steel vats and cool fermented, followed by 8 months on lees. The second fermentation was via the charmat method, followed by a further 10 months on lees, providing complexity, fine bubbles and a creamy mousse which complement the delicate citrus flavours that are typical of the region.
This fine wine will drink beautifully over the next 3-4 years.
This delightful wine is an ideal match for canapés and shellfish.
Awards and Reviews
“Coming from the cool climate Southern Tablelands of NSW, clear, bright and pale straw in colour with a consistent small bead. The nose has lifted citrus aromas with creamy yeasty tones and is crisp and clean. There is a good balance between the citrus acid and fruit weight, along with a creamy mouthfeel and a good length to the palate. Enjoy now or over the next 2 or so years.” Stephen Read, Wine Matrix 90/100
