Pale lemon colour and a delicate mousse upon pouring. Exudes freshness and pure fruit on the nose by showcasing vibrant notes of Granny Smith apple, peach blossom and candied lemon peel.

In the Vineyard

Soil Low yielding, well drained vertical shale/schist
Aspect easterly facing slope
Trellis vines

Harvest

Grapes were night harvested and picked by hand to retain flavours. Yield 5.1 tons/ha

Cellar Practices

Grapes were whole bunch pressed in our pneumatic press on a champagne programme – very long and gentle pressing. 100% of the base wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and lay on the lees for 9 months before it was bottled. 100% malo-lactic fermentation done before bottling. After a controlled 2nd fermentation in the bottle to create the magical sparkle, an extended 26 month period of yeast contact was done to ensure maximum development. Exceptional bubbly.
