The Classic Cuvée is a blend from the noble Champagne varieties Pinot Noir (81%)
and Chardonnay (19%). The grapes were carefully hand-picked and whole-cluster
pressed, with only the best press cuttings going into the wine. After a slow, cold,
natural settle, the juice was inoculated for primary fermentation, with a portion of
the juice going into barrel to add complexity and mouth feel. The wine was bottled
for secondary fermentation the following spring, and remained on-lees for a
minimum of 30 months to develop the secondary yeast flavours, before being
disgorged and given time under cork before release.
Delicate fine bubbles, golden colour with slight blush tint.
Underlying lemons, peach and apricot are accompanied by cooked apples,
breadcrumbs, honey and almond.
Great depth and length, with crisp finesse and full-mouthfeel.
