Blanc de Blancs 2015

Body: Medium to full

Style: Rich, opulent and fruity. A wine to savour every sip.
Food Pairing: Delicious with lemon sole and a beurre blanc sauce.
Tasting Notes: A distinct, full bodied and expressive style of sparkling. Light gold in colour, with a fine stream of persistent bubbles. The aroma is pronounced, full of apricots and buttery almond croissants are at the fore. The palate is rich for a sparkling due to the oak, full of citrus, butter and candied peel. The perfect sparkling to enjoy with canapés, or even a main course. Only 1422 bottles made.
Winemaker's Notes: This Blanc de blancs is a blend of the best Chardonnay and Pinot blanc from 2015. What makes this a slightly different sparkling from our usual, is that all of the wine used was fermented and aged in oak before being blended. This results in a wine with more body, texture and more tropical notes than a typical Blanc de blancs. The wine underwent secondary ferment in bottle and was then aged for a minimum of 4 and a half years before release.
