We like Sparkling the way we like our cars.
Classically styled and built the old fashioned way.

This traditional method Adelaide Hills sparkling features the two varieties that are the backbone of our region.

Pinot Noir (60%), Chardonnay (40%)

Tasting notes

Pale Straw. The colour does not reflect the 5+ years invested in maturation.  Reminiscent of a Lemon Cake and Almond Croissant. 

Like tasting the first mouthful of lemon cake with toasted Almonds followed by creamy palate weight. Green apple to continue the freshness evolving into a buttery baked croissant and fresh brioche. 

A pure mineral backbone, with crunchy acidity and bold structure to enjoy a long and persistent palate.
