PRE-ORDER FOR RELEASE IN EARLY NOVEMBER 2020
Created from estate grown Pinot Noir Clone 115 grapes, our Traditional Method Blanc de Noirs exemplifies English finesse and balance. The fruit was hand-picked separately over a ten day period with this particular variety selected to create a more full-bodied style owing to a slight accentuation of tannins, developing into a more luxurious mouth-feel.
The base wine underwent malolactic fermentation and spent three months in tank aging on light lees. After a series of tastings, the wines were blended, filtered and bottled to obtain the ‘prise de mousse’. Following the bottle fermentation, the wine spent two years aging on yeast lees prior to disgorgement in July 2020, followed by three months aging on cork.
Burnished gold and with a delicate mousse, this wine has a luxurious, vanilla cream and fine pastry nose, with flavours of fresh Alpine strawberry, toasted brioche and a smooth elegant finish.
Included in the price of your pre-ordered case of Flint Fields Blanc de Noirs 2017 is the opportunity to collect your case from the Estate when it is released in early November and for two people to join us for one of our Wine Tasting Experiences in the Glass House Tasting Room.
Running for approximately one hour it features an introduction to Simpsons’ Wine Estate and a relaxed tutored tasting of our current releases, including the Canterbury Rose 2018 and Flint Fields 2017.
