Tasting Notes

With a golden hue and a fine, persistent bead, this wine has a luxurious, vanilla and fine pastry nose. On the palate it is elegant and poised, with poached pear and generous red fruit flavours perfectly married with hints of almond croissant and wonderful savoury nuances. It is bone dry and has a smooth, elegant finish.

Technical Details

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Alcohol: 12.5% Vol

Harvesting & Vinification: Grapes from Pinot Noir Clone 115 were hand-picked over a five day period. We use this particular clone to create a more full-bodied style owing to a slight accentuation of tannins, developing into a more luxurious mouth-feel.

Secondary Fermentation & Ageing: The base wine underwent malolactic fermentation and spent three months in tank ageing on light lees. After a series of tastings, the wine was blended, filtered and bottled to obtain the ‘prise de mousse’. Following the bottle fermentation, the wine spent twenty-seven months ageing on yeast lees prior to disgorgement, followed by four months ageing under cork, prior to release in November 2021.

Reviews

"Attractive cooked apple and patisserie nose with an umami note. The palate is broad, nutty and savoury with a fine, elegant mousse enlivened with lemon and red apple. The finish is long and sapid showing weight and intensity making this a superb sparkling wine to partner white meats, stronger flavoured fish dishes and cooked seafoods as to make it a great wine to place on a tasting menu. It also has a capacity to age and evolve over the next 3 to 4 years, increasing complexity and integration." 

Clive Barlow, Master of Wine

 

“This is fresh and citric on the nose with a touch of honey, there’s fresh strawberry fruit on the palate with an underlying rich meatiness.”

Henry Jeffreys, BBC Good Food Magazine
