100% Chardonnay sourced from vines planted at the base of sandstone mountains in the historic Grampians appellation in Western Victoria. The soils are sandy loam over a vein of granite and the climate is typically cool and wet, especially in 2011.
This is the sort of sparkling wine that sits at the intersection of pure enjoyment and geeky contemplation. We have loved this wine for years!
There is plenty of freshness and natural acidity (a feature that Ben Haines is deeply passionate about) from the cool vintage and sumptuous, creamy texture from spending 4+ years on its lees. The wine is bottled under crown cap without being disgorged, no dosage, and no added sulphur. The interplay between the leesy, toasty aromas and flavors of crisp lemon with tart apple and stone on the long and generous finish make this a dynamic wine perfect as an aperó or served around grilled vegetables this summer.
