2009 “FAMILY RESERVE” Sparkling

$48.00

Style:  This classic style vintage of sparkling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay was always destined to be put away in the cellar and released when it reached the pinnacle of complexity and palate weight.

Appearance: Medium golden straw with glints of green colour indicating quality fruit.

Aroma: Brioche, yeast and biscuit and stone fruits thrill the senses.

Palate: A wonderful fruit driven style, full of flavour, palate weight and immense length.

Food: Serve chilled with canapes or shellfish and good friends for an enjoyable experience.

Our long cool summer days in these southerly latitudes ensure slow ripening which is essential for achieving the elegance, crispness and complexity inherent in a quality sparkling wine. The Pinot Noir & Chardonnay fruit was nurtured on our Estate and crafted into a wine style our Family adores. This wine spent 6 years on its yeast lees allowing it to develop into an extremely rich and complex palate displaying a depth of flavour akin to the classic vintage wines of its native origin.

A minimal addition of preservative (224) added.

Alc 12.5
