2014 Sparkling Wine
The inaugural release of our estate sparkling chardonnay is bright and lifted on the nose with a delicate lean palate presence offering great length and nuance in a clean fresh expression. Hints of granny smith apple, pear blossom, and wet stone combine with more savory elements of white pepper and a slight brininess reminiscent of sea breezes. Subtle hints of lemon meringue suggesting the rewards of this wines layers and age-ability, for those willing to wait…. After one year in barrel, the base wine was then prepared for bottling (tirage) where it spent the next year undergoing a second fermentation in bottle, before it was disgorged with the addition of 4 g/L dosage (extra brut).
