Tasting Notes

This is a delicate Méthode Traditionnelle with a steady bead featuring well composed aromas of stone fruit and biscuit, mealy flavours from the aging on lees. The palate is fresh and lively exhibiting classic stone-fruit flavours, complexed by yeast aromas. A hint of sweetness is balanced by a crisp acidity to give a drying finish.

Wine Review

Best Buy -TizWine Awards

"You get a big bang for your buck with this bubbly. It’s got an intense bready character and weight that’s a rare find at this price point, backed by bright fresh apple and lemon fruit."

Vineyards and Winemaking

This wine is from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes grown in our Riverview and Kinross vineyards in Hawkes Bay.

The grapes for this wine were harvested and transported to our Riverview winery. The fruit was pressed into stainless steel, settled, racked and tankered to our Katikati winery for fermentation. The juice was inoculated with Prise de Mousse (PDM) yeast strain. Following fermentation, the wine was inoculated for malolactic fermentation. The wine was kept on yeast lees for approximately a year with regular stirring to maintain yeast viability for as long as possible. Following blending, the wine was tirage bottled for secondary fermentation. The bottles were held for a minimum of 9 months of maturation on lees and are disgorged as required.
