.

Ageing Potential

Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and poultry over the next 2+years.

Palate

Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh flavours of juicy strawberries and pomegranate, melded with a gentle layering of creaminess. The mouthfeel is refreshing with fine, lacy acidity and the effervescence provides a creaminess to the texture and flow. The wine carries seamlessly with lovely elegance and a persistent finish. This is a harmoniously balanced, elegant method traditionnelle with cherries and red fruits on a seamless flowing palate.

Winemaking

100% clone 5 pinot noir from the Pinnacles Vineyard, with the wine undergoing complete malolactic fermentation. It was aged 6 months on primary lees then tiraged and left for one and a half years on lees in bottle before being disgorged April 2018
