Made from 100% Orange Chardonnay, the fruit was hand picked and immediately transported to our winery in the Hunter Valley. The fruit was handled very delicately and whole bunch pressed in order to preserve the pure fruit flavour characteristics. The Blanc de Blanc was matured on yeast lees in the bottle for over 36 months to increase complexity and texture to the wine, which was then disgorged in January 2016.
The 2013 Vintage will be one of the New South Wales’ classic vintages. With very hot summer conditions where we saw the highest temperature ever recorded, flavours were concentrated and vintage began earlier than usual, starting on January 15 in the Hunter Valley and finishing in mid April in Orange. Although quality is very high, quantity is very low.
Brilliant white-gold with a fine, persistent bead.
Fresh aromas of pears and citrus fruit with a slight toast and brioche characters from time on lees.
The palate has clean citrus fruit and white pear flavours with some toasty and creamy notes. A long and elegant palate with a fine, lively bead and a delicate mousse.
