54% Pinot Noir, 46% Chardonnay. The fruit for this sparkling wine is sourced from a variety of Central Otago sub-regions, with varying soil profiles, vine age and aspect. All parcels are hand havested, whole bunch pressed and fermented seperately. 4% will be aged in old oak.  Individual parcels are subsequently blended with 15% reserve wine.

Aged on lees in bottle following secondary fermentation for 18 months, riddled, disgorged, aged on cork for an additional minimum 3 mths before release.

LIfted florals, citrus and stonefruit perfume, with freshly baked baguette. Palate is zesty and fresh, with complex autolytic toasted brioche notes and fine persistent bead. Lovely length and mouth filling richness balanced with bright acidity. The perfect aperitif. AKARUA
