|Colour:||This current release sparkling wine has an attractive pale green-gold colour.|
|Aroma:||Fresh, lively aromas of pear and apple.|

Recommended food pairings: This wine makes an ideal aperitif or as an accompaniment to a range of appetisers. Delightful with natural oysters drizzled with a lemon juice. It would also be ideal with smoked salmon and caviar blinis. Try it with shallow fried calamari with a lemon and dill mayonnaise.
Growing Conditions: This wine is a blend of different parcels of Pinot Noir 55%, Chardonnay 33% & Pinot Meunier 12%, from cool climate vineyards in the King Valley and Tumbarumba. All fruit was hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed to minimise contact between the juice and the grape skins and seeds.
Winemaker: Cate Looney
Winemaking notes: 100% of the fruit underwent malolactic fermentation and after vintage the various wines were assembled and assessed. The selected blend then underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine spent three and a half years on yeast lees to add complexity and allow greater merging of aged and yeast autolysis characters. It was then disgorged, liqueured and bottled with an alcohol level of 13%. Vegan-friendly.
