Made in the traditional method, this is a serious ‘grower style’ sparkling wine from our coolest sections and specialist clones of Margaret River Chardonnay. Terroir is at the forefront of this single vintage Blanc de Blancs (‘white from white’), with the wine reflecting our distinct Chardonnay sections and winemaking style.
Dry warm spring conditions at the end of 2015 helped establish a healthy fruit set and better yields than the previous two seasons. January temperatures were warm, interrupted by one rainfall event late in the month, great viticulture management, clean, well-trimmed canopies and subsequent warm weather prevented disease risk. The first two weeks of February (our final weeks of ripening) brought colder nights then we're used to at that time of the year. These cold nights assisted in retention of acidity, while berries ripened otherwise normally in sugar and flavour. White varieties were harvested throughout February with elegant flavours and bright natural acidity.
