Tasting Notes

Parcels of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were hand-selected from our Glasnevin vineyard on the South East side of the Waipara Valley. This vintage is a classic blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay.  Made in the classic Methode style of Champagne, the fruit was gently pressed before being cool-fermented in stainless tanks. After lees aging and one year in tank the wine was bottled in January 2015 before undergoing traditional secondary ferment in the bottle.  The wine was aged on lees for 34 months before being disgorged in November 2017.  The nose is fine with initial almond, apricot and white peach aromatics that develop to biscuit yeast characters of hot buttered toast and a hint of liquorice root. The palate is elegant, packed with citrus and mineral characters and a beautifully balanced, refreshingly dry finish.
