VINTAGE Sparkling 2017
Light…… 1….2…3…4…5…Full bodied
This best-known Yarra Burn range showcases varieties that are perfectly matched to vineyard conditions at selected Yarra Valley & Victorian sites. Using the three classic varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this wine is blended to a consistency of style and has an elegance and complexity that is rare. 72% of the fruit is sourced from the Yarra Valley, a key driver of the style and quality of this wine.
Crystal clear with a fine persistent bead, a medium straw colour and a golden hue.
Lifted citrus and white peach characters with nuances of yeast brioche and sourdough.
Pale straw with a golden hue, this wine displays bold aromatics of toasted brioche, mushroom ragout, roasted almonds and hints of red fruit.
The pinot based fruit tones meld into stone fruit characters and citrus structural acid, whilst developed yeast and nut flavours give the wine layers of complexity and length. This is a renowned sparkling label with wines of elegant structure, complex flavours and fresh natural acidity on the finish.
The winter and spring of 2016 were above the average rainfall and provided a sound soil water profile to support development of the vine canopy. This combined with generally cool conditions was the basis for producing wines of elegant structure and fine flavours that have matured very gracefully.
