Region: Mornington Peninsula, VIC
Winemaker: Imogen Dillon, Martin Spedding
Established Date: 2000
The Chardonnay grapes were hand-harvested, and transferred directly to press, with the first 500 litres per tonne of fruit (cuvée) collected to be used exclusively for this wine. The juice was then stirred and sent directly to old French oak barriques where an indigenous yeast fermentation proceeded before the wines lees were stirred over the course of the winter period. The base wine was then assembled and tiraged to bottle. After a period of 23 months on its yeast lees, the wine was riddled and disgorged before the dosage was made and then bottled sealed with cork.
All chardonnay taken from the wallis vineyard. 4grams dosage. On lees for 4 and a half years.
An amazing blanc de blancs, A real sense of richness at first both on the nose and palate. Then the crisp green apple cuts through and livens things up, great length and acidity. Quality winemaking over a long period of time is required to make a sparkling wine of this quality. Fine bubbles that dance over the tongue and a long lingering finish of biscuit and brioche.
