The making of our blanc de blancs relies on building a core of fresh crisp fruit with layers of intrigue.

The components of complexity are enhanced by 100% barrel fermentation, yeast lees retainment and a guided malolactic fermentation.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fresh lemon and lime with gentle herbal and spice notes and gentle complexing yeast lees. Lightly complex interplay of primary fermentation battonage and striking lime citrus, fresh and creamy.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is primarily sourced from our Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay blocks. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight easterly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Production Notes
The sparkling is bottled early to retain freshness and bright primary fruit character. The end result, a wine of interesting nuances highlighted by an expression of youth.
Winemaker Notes
An unconventional vintage, 2021 was challenging. A cooler lead up into the season, especially compared to previous vintages, meant bigger canopies and a later start. Yields however were low and became a blessing in disguise as 200mm of rain fell across 80 days during peak grape ripening. A late season rain event caused by cyclone activity in early April spelt the end of vintage as winemakers scurried to get remaining grapes into the winery.
