A 2002 Chardonnay Sparkling Wine - Brut Style is warm, rich and full flavoured with distinctive toastiness as well as citrus freshness. Stylish and sophisticated with beautiful fruit bouquets on the nose. The ageing of this wine on yeast in the bottle, a traditional Western European Technique - Technique Traditionelle creates perfect complexity, quality and the harmonising of flavours. The harvesting time of this magnificent wine was crucial to its making, with the perfect grape acidity level. The ripe peach and pear aromas are pure. The clove aromas are partly related to the cool climate grown chardonnay . A perfectly balanced sparkling wine - the texture is viscous without oiliness and with a dry finish without hardness. Only Castle Glen Vineyard organic grown grapes, selectively handpicked are used in this unique preservative free wine. No sulphites added. Handmade.
