Traditional method vintage sparkling comprising 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. Aged sur lies 24 months.
A vibrant, lively nose displaying classic oyster shell and sea spray. Layers of zest, pip fruit and white currant augment natural minerality. There is a sparkiness too, and warm, toasty notes. Touches of green chilli, nutmeg and ground ginger complement length and freshness.
Clean, vibrant and poised on the palate, showcasing our vineyard’s classic minerality. The body fills out nicely to reveal a balanced framework of green apple, briny sea spray, limequat zest, pistachio nougat, finishing with a hint of white Turkish delight as the wine returns to zesty fine, clean acid. Elevage and bottle age offer lightly toasted brioche, crème fraiche and marzipan with a touch of kaffir lime leaf. Fine and persistent bead.
