SKU: 2018 Oakdene Kristen Sparkling Blanc de Blancs

Appearance
Pale straw in colour.

Bouquet
Lemon, grapefruit, nectarine notes, leading to fresh bread and yeast driven characters.

Palate
Fine persistent mousse, pithy green apple notes. Fine creamy mid palate texture, driven by impressive acidity and length.

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 38 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.
