a crown seal maintains the 7 atm pressure better over time (corks slowly fail)
and better sparkling or wine in the glass.
Tasting Notes
Background

This stylish sparkling wine was made from 68% Chardonnay and 32% Pinot Noir grapes from the high altitude, cool King Valley in Victoria. A warm summer allowed the grapes achieve maturity a little earlier than previous years.
The two varieties were picked and fermented separately. Some parcels were allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The blended base wine matured on its yeast lees for 12 months gaining mid-palate and attractive, nutty, bready complexity before undergoing its secondary fermentation.

 

Tasting Notes

 

Colour
Bright, pale yellow/straw.

Nose
White nectarine and subtle pear aromas, with a hint of bready yeast lees.

Structure / Palate
Crisp and fresh, with stonefruit and lemon flavours. Finishes clean and dry.
This sparkling wine sets itself apart from other competitively priced wines by its subtle yeast complexity. It’s delicious at any time, by itself or with casual meals.
