As the name suggests, our non vintage Blanc de blanc is a sparkling white wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. 2018 was the first year we have made this wine and we are thrilled with the result. The grapes were harvested early in the season to ensure low alcohol and high acid in the wine – two elements crucial for balanced sparkling wine. After a gentle pressing, the juice was fermented at low temperatures to retain the green apple and white nectarine aromas and flavours. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wine was briefly aged on yeast lees to add some creaminess to the palate. After the 2nd fermentation to add the bubbles, the wine was bottled and released to the market as a fresh as fresh can be. This wine is designed to be consumed in its youth to best enjoy the pure Yarra Valley Chardonnay fruit.
