Gold Award | Australian Sparkling Wine Show 2013
Made in the traditional method, this Sparkling has had 4.5 years on lees and drinks beautifully. Thought we better say it has been made by traditional method as Halliday wrote on his review, if it has been made by traditional method, why not let us in on the secret?!
| Appearance: A clear vibrant pale straw. Distinctive beads.
Nose: Refined with lovely yeast and honey characters.
Palate: Yeast and honey flavours. Elegant, refined, a drier crisp style with good length.
Our Sparkling Chardonnay was produced to celebrate UMAMU’s journey.
The grapes were handpicked in the early morning in mid February, whole bunch pressed and fermented, then battonaged weekly for two months to make the Sparkling base wine.
The Sparkling base wine then underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle and each bottle was kept on lees and progress monitored with an intended minimum of three years.
With careful monitoring of the wine’s development, the Sparkling was disgorged after four and a half years on lees.
* Only available in cases of six
