Editors notes

65% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir. Méthode traditionnelle, with a minimum of two years on lees and one year on cork pre-release. Fruit-pure, intense, rich, creamy and complex. A wine with great length but not too bold and dry.

"I’d drink this in preference to most of the cheaper real Champagnes" - Chris Shanahan, The Canberra Times

Critic Scores & reviews

    "This year’s Tasmanian Wine Show trophy winner has iced pastry aromas, and some bread and brioche notes. The palate quite rich, full and rounded, its richness enhanced by a well-judged touch of sweetness."
  • James Halliday

    "A 70/30% blend of chardonnay and pinot noir disgorged Aug '18. Chardonnay is dominant on both paper and in the mouth; the wine has white flowers, white stone fruit and grapefruit, the balance and length both right on the money."
  • Campbell Mattinson

    "Made with 65% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, all estate grown. If Australian NV sparkling is on your radar – and why wouldn’t it be – then look no further. It’s a crisp, racy, fresh-faced style in general and yet it has complexity and breadth. Love the freshness, love the flavour. Red and green apples, citrus, bread and roses. Satisfying and refreshing. Grown right, made right, tastes right, priced right."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

Tasmania

Apart from being the most southerly wine region in Australia, Tasmania has among the coolest growing subregions with the potential to make distinctly different wines than in the rest of the country.

Most well known for cool-climate varietals like Pinot noir and Chardonnay (thus sparkling too), Sauvignon Blanc smaller plantings of Riesling, Cabernet and Pinot Gris (more commonly Pinot labelled Pinot Grigio)

Historically, Tasmania can lay claim to being the founder of both the Victorian and South Australian wine industries as William Henty sailed from Launceston to Portland (in Victoria) in 1834 and planted grape cuttings there. Though not conclusively proven, it's believed that John Hack planted vines in South Australia in 1837, closely followed in 1838 by John Reynell.

Warmer vintages (possibly attributable to global warming) has had positive effects on region's industry, allowing grapes in recent vintages to achieve full phenolic ripeness, making for vibrant wines that have been widely accepted as world class.

Southern Tasmania

Southern Tasmania is an exciting up-and-coming wine region that includes the area of Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania. The vineyards of this area include those from Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley, and the Huon Valley wine regions. Renowned for their Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling grapes, Southern Tasmania is fast becoming a prominent wine region to watch.

Because of its geographical location, the cool maritime climate helps play a big part in the slow ripening process, which creates a balance of flavour and acidity. In Southern Tasmania, site selection of the grapes is a very important factor- the red wine varieties are usually grown higher up on the hills where they get plenty of sunshine, and the grapes of white wine varieties are closer to the river where the water helps moderate the heat during the summer days, and also keeps the spring frosts at bay. The alluvial soil found in this region varies according to the proximity of the river; the soil closer to the river is usually deeper than the soil found on the vineyards further away from the river.
