Overview

A blend of the best parcels of cool climate premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay parcels from our estate-grown vineyards. The high altitude and cool climate of our home in the Adelaide Hills ensure fantastic flavour retention underpinned y fine acid making it a perfect environment for grown berries suitable for sparkling wine production.

Fruit comes from our Balhannah vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. The Chardonnay (80%) and Pinot Noir (20%) for the sparkling base are harvested mid-February during the cool of the night. The two varieties are crushed, pressed and fermented separately and only blend just prior to secondary ferment. All sparkling bases are allowed to go through some degree of malolactic fermentation.
