Tasting Notes

Bright and refreshing, this wine is full of citrus zest, vanilla and white flowers. The palate is layered with lemon curd from the Chardonnay fruit and delicate strawberries from the Pinot Noir, balanced by creamy notes from aging in bottle and the refreshing natural acidity the Pipers River region is renowned for. Aperftif in style, classic in execution.

Accolades & Awards
92 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion

"A potent traditional method blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. You know without being told (and you aren't) that this will be a blend of the recent prior vintage plus small amounts from older vintages. You are also left to guess how long it was left on lees before being disgorged, but it's undeniably complex, with tangerine, white flowers, grapefruit and crunchy green apple."

90 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front

"Tasmania sparkling using pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier grapes. Traditional method. Heaps going on. Flavour plus. It’s not refined or elegant but you can hardly argue over the delivery of complex character. Orange rind, strawberry, citrus, brown bread and tangerines. Florals too. Dry style but lots of fruit and fun.





Technical

This non-vintage blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wine grapes is sourced from vineyard blocks of significant vine age, specifically established and managed for sparkling wine production in the Pipers Brook district. Clonal selections that produce large berries are favoured over those that produce smaller berries and would otherwise contribute greater phenolics to the base wine. Sites in the Pipers Brook district feature Ferrosol (volcanic) soils, also known as kraznozems. Basalt-derived, they have excellent water holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to vines. Vines are grown predominantly on cane pruned, Vertical Shoot Positioned (VSP) trellises that are hedge-trimmed in summer to provide increased bunch exposure to the sun. Row-spacings are narrow, typically 1.5m-2.2m apart.

Selectively harvested in the cold morning hours across the Pipers River Region. The cool fruit was very carefully whole bunch pressed extracted only the most delicate juice. Cool fermented to retain the exemplary Tasmanian fruit characters and blended to create a wonderfully complex wine, the wine then underwent secondary fermentation in bottle to create a classical Tasmanian sparkling wine. Aged for over a year before release this wine has complexity and creaminess that only bottle fermentation of sparkling wines can deliver.
