SKU: 2017 Kristen Sparkling Blanc de Blancs

Appearance
Bright straw in colour.

Bouquet
Lifted citrus driven nose with floral notes, leading to yeast driven characters.

Palate
Fine persistent mousse, pithy green apple notes. Fine creamy mid palate texture with a slight phenolic grip, leading to a very fine, long and intense acid driven finish.

Fermentation
Fruit was harvested early to retain acidity and allow long term aging on yeast lees. The wine is a dry (or brut) style made from 100% Chardonnay made in the “traditional method”, where the secondary ferment takes place in bottle. The wine is left to ferment and age on lees for 34 months before hand riddling, disgorging, corking and finished with a measured dosage (still wine and sugar addition) to balance the wine and fill out the palate.

Conclusion
A dry aperitif style, to be enjoyed chilled with or without food.
