Growing Conditions: Premium Cuvée for sparkling wine is made from various combinations of the grape varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. When grown in areas that experience cool ripening conditions like Tasmania, the varieties produce sparkling wines of finesse, elegance and delicacy of flavour. This Cuvée is made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from selected sites in our Tamar Valley vineyards. It contains a blend of parcels of wine from several vintages each contributing its own subtle layer of flavour and complexity.
Winemaking notes: This Cuvée is made from a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir grapes from selected sites off our Tasmanian vineyards. Initial fermentation took place in stainless steel tank under strict temperature control to allow us to retain maximum fruit aroma and flavour. Secondary ferment also took place in tank and the wine was then bottled under pressure to protect its lively sparkle. This method delivers bright, fresh fruit characters without the intrusion of flavours and aromas derived from yeast lees. It was bottled with an alcohol of 12.0% a T.A. of 6.6g/l and a pH of 3.29.
