A top Australian sparkling that possesses wonderful freshness and complexity.

A blend of 67% Chardonnay and 33% Pinot Noir that has been aged for 7 years. Pours with a white frothy mousse that dissipates to reveal a pale straw, pale gold edged base wine that has a steady stream of very fine bubbles that show excellent persistence. The nose shows excellent intensity and is very Champagne like in its complexity. Aromas of toasty brioche and yeast lees climb their way out of the glass with some biscuity citrus, roasted almond characters also present. The palates very precise and focused opening is offset by a moderate creaminess with flavours of pear, citrus and subtle dried honey overlaid by a distinctive toasty roasted almond character. There’s also baked bread and yeast lees nuances evident. Clean crisp acidity with a very dry finish. Long aftertaste of toast, roasted almonds, citrus, yeast lees and very subtle dried honey. Very Limited Stocks.
Cellar 5-6 years.
