• Classic Cuvee More Information

    The Classic Cuvée is an elegant sparkling wine, showing a depth of citrus and stone fruits flavours, along with the more complex secondary aromas of cooked apples, breadcrumbs, honey and almond.

    WINEMAKING NOTES

    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 24 months to develop the secondary yeast flavours, before being disgorged and given time under cork before release.
