Vineyard Notes
Single Vineyard/Bio-Dynamic
Winemaking
Natural alcoholic fermantion with the use of only natural/native yeasts. Malolactic fermentation completed but with no filtration of fining being conducted. The use of the concrete tank format (Egg) creates a very expressive and clean wine, the influence of the concrete tanks on the flavour profile helps to create a very direct and pure taste. The fact the wine is also Zero Dosage, this is truely a Natural Wine and a wine of terroir
Tasting Notes
You feel the sensation of the smell and taste of rain on a hot road or the smell of the rocks in the river in the summer. The terroir, the hints of saltiness, touches of light herbs & aromats, It is a wine you have to really experience to understand, we like to normally decante this Champagne as it gives the opportunty for all the complexity of this wine to better intergrate with one another. This is truely a stunning wine and a very unique one.
Style
Direct. compact and driven.
Colour
Golden Pear
Bouquet
The punch of rain on the road on a hot summers day
Palate
Dry , delicate and direct, slight undertones of citrus with some liktly stewed pears and peaches. A punch of saltiness and the reflection of the terrior with tha wonderful etheral earthy feel and weight
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

Food Matches
Just about anything as this will carry itself across so much differing food styles and types. Great with Marron, oysters, pasta, pizza really what ever your heart and taste buds desire.
