2016 ‘Queen of Diamonds’ Blanc de blancs Sparkling Chardonnay
Clear in colour, delicious and delicate. Green apples, pears and buttered toast dominate the aromatics. A persistent and fine effervescence carries the palate of grapefruit, lemon zest and cashews through the mouth. Perfectly in balance.
Our Queen of Diamonds is the real deal when it comes to sparkling wine. Two fermentations occur, the secondary ferment is in the bottle. It’s bottled aged on yeast lees for 36 months to add complexity and toasty notes. Riddled. Disgorged then dosaged with 4.5g sugar.
The perfect aperitif with freshly shucked oysters or delicious served with croissants and smoked salmon for breakfast!
2016 ‘Queen Bee’ Blanc de blancs Sparkling Chardonnay (Magnum 1.5 litres, 200 bottles only)
Straw in colour, delicious and delicate with a great month feel. A fine and persistent bubble carries the flavours of white peach and citrus, with a creamy honey finish.
With the Magnum Queen Bee two fermentations occur with the first 14 months being spent in oak, the secondary ferment in the bottle and left on lees for 36 months. The bottles are hand riddled, disgorged and dosaged with minimal residual sugar.
The perfect accompaniment to barbequed marron or a freshly caught crayfish.
