Lifted and complex bouquet with exotic aromas of white flowers, lemon essence, lychee and oyster shell.
Winter rainfall was well above average and the continuing, light spring rains maintained a relatively high soil moisture content to support strong vine growth during the growing season.
Crafted in the traditional sparkling winemaking method, combined with fastidious and modern viticultural techniques. The fruit is hand-picked and gently pressed with only the highest quality juice selected for fermentation. Further complexity and character are built into the wine with 10% fermentation in first use French Oak barriques followed by 100% malolactic fermentation. The blended wine has been matured for seven years in tirage ensuring a depth and complexity consistent with the worlds’ finest cuvées.
