Our Vintage sparkling wine (Blanc de Blancs) is made from only Chardonnay grapes using the traditional method. The current vintages have had extensive time on lees to develop yeasty characteristics and rich citrus flavours. These wines have fine persistent bubbles and should be enjoyed at every opportunity or occasions large and small; happy and sad.

The 2008 season was optimal, and the quality and quantity of grapes produced this year were outstanding. Each of the varietals from this vintage have been exceptional, none more so than the Sparkling which was awarded Gold medals at both the Tasmanian and National Wine Shows (scoring 95 out of 100).

Our vintage Blanc de Blancs sparkling has subtle citrus flavours. It is an elegant starter or fabulous with dessert or cheese.

Alcohol content: 12.5% (7.4 standard drinks)
Size: 750 mL

More about this wine

2008 season

Unlike the 2007 vintage, the 2008 season was optimal, with a warm spring, sufficient soil moisture and a fine and dry flowering period in November-December. January was warmer than average however February was cool. The average summer temperature was 1C above normal. The autumn day temperatures were 1.5C above average but the nights were still cool, providing ideal ripening conditions for the grapes. The quality and quantity of grapes produced this year were exceptional. This year we produced our first Sparkling wine - a Blanc de Blanc made from the Chardonnay grapes, as well as a still Riesling and a Pinot noir.

Preservative and allergen information

We use a small amount of sulphur-based preservative (224) in all of our wines and Verjuice to stabilise the wine and ensure a long life.

All of our still wines are packaged on a bottling line that may have traces of nut products. We do not use any nuts as part of our production process.

Our white wines may contain traces of dairy products (skim milk) remaining in the wine after the fining and filtration process.

Our red wines are vegan-friendly wines, as we do not use any animal products in their production.

Packaging and recycling information

Our sparkling wine is labelled with recyclable waterproof labels (designed to remain intact in ice buckets!) and biodegradable inks. The cap, cage (muselet), foil and glass bottle are fully recyclable.

Our natural cork stopper can be composted at home or via compost collection, or recycled through ReCork (available at select Dan Murphy’s stores across Australia).

All of our still wines are labelled with compostable paper-based labels for each varietal and a handwritten year; this allows us to eliminate duplication of labels for different vintages. The screw cap and glass bottle are fully recyclable.

We ship all of our wine using recycled cardboard packaging. Sparkling wine is packaged during bottling; still wine is packaged during order processing. You may receive different packages depending on availability. We reuse boxes from tasting events and within our storage facility.
