Tasting Notes
This all-natural style of sparkling combines great freshness in a wine that is bright and satisfying. Raspberry and blood orange aromatics are complemented by a juicy acidity and lively fizz making for a perfect summer drink. It has some cloudy sediment and can get a little friendly when opening so to avoid any spillage serve it ice-cold.
Wine Making
The fruit was picked in the early hours of the morning from different locations in Southern Margaret River. The juice was gently pressed to tank and fermented in stainless steel to highlight freshness above all. The wine was then bottled with 12g/L of residual sugar to develop in bottle just the right amount of fizz to tickle your palate on a warm summer day. Unfined and unfiltered with no additions of sulphur.
Vintage Report
A season of great balance, which produced wines of grace, perfume, and longevity in Southern Margaret River. Winter was wet and cooler than average, and we experienced a cool but dry spring across the Margaret River region. Good flowering conditions resulted in good bunch numbers and weights, producing good yields after three years of tiny crops. Summer was one of the driest on record with relatively mild temperatures leading into January; these conditions delayed canopy development but January bought fantastic weather with warm, sunny, and breezy days as hoped, but without any temperature spikes and heat stress. Excellent diurnal temperature variation was a constant of this season, setting us up for a highly aromatic vintage and perfect phenological ripeness of the skins and seeds. All red varieties loved the dryer conditions and are showing excellent potential with nerve, beautiful purple colours, and vibrant aromatics typical of this southern Margaret River area.
