Easy drinking with a fresh, creamy acidity. Exhibiting crisp minerality and hints of a subtle pear and apple blossom.
I have always loved a glass of bubbles, be it white, red or anything in between. Whilst sparkling wine is often celebratory, I love to open a bottle on any occasion – a Friday night is definitely worth celebrating at the end of a week. After sourcing Chardonnay fruit from a unique site in Tooborac and making a table white in 2018, we wanted to try something a little different in 2019, so I set out to make a sparkling. Made just the way I like to drink it, our 2019 Blanc-de-Blanc is fresh and light, without any heavy yeast characteristics. And it will be the only wine of its kind as sadly, the Tooborac vineyard was flattened in late 2020
Grown amongst the cool, southern granite hills of the Heathcote faultline, the fruit for our 2019 Blanc-de-Blanc was handpicked and then lightly pressed to promote freshness and acidity. Post ferment, the wine was racked to seasoned French barriques for 10 months ageing, followed by 12 months on lees (made in the Traditional Method).
