Juicy, complex, lengthy.
This traditional method sparkling is made entirely from Chardonnay that was harvested in early September 2017. The base wine was fermented in seasoned Chardonnay barrels and puncheons and aged for 6 months in the oak. It was racked from fermentation lees and secondary fermentation took place the following May. The wine spent 22 months on secondary fermentation lees before disgorgement in late winter 2020, where it received a small 8 g/L residual sugar dosage of 2017 Chardonnay.
Glinting golden it has aromas of buttery brioche, tangerine, vanilla scented cream, yellow apples and peaches with notes of honeysuckle. The attack is juicy, mid-palate flavours of yellow apples, lemon curd and nutty pastries mimic the nose. Lengthy and complex with a fine bead make for a fantastic fizz.
