World Wine – "Produced from the 20 year old Bizot vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley and less than 500 litres of juice per tonne. The wine was fermented and aged in old oak for 10 months on lees before bottling and further lees ageing for 42 months. This is a sparkling of the highest order and the best Australian Blanc de Blanc I have enjoyed , holding its own with the best of Champagne. This should be no surprise given the pedigree of the producer. A light golden yellow in colour with a nose of creamy white peach, faint touches of marzipan and red apple. The palate unravels with layers of complexity, there is a lifted richness to stone fruits with a backdrop of blanched almond and clotted cream. The textural grip is savoury and moreish. There is a lovely freshness to finish with brioche and almond meal before a final embellishment to oyster shell and peach. Drink 2021-2030." - Patrick Eckel (winereviewer.com.au)

About This Wine

A magnificent, top-end Australian sparkling, Champagne-style wine. The sharp acidity from partial malolactic fermentation has not been masked by a generous dosage, but is more effectively balanced by the delicate texture of the intertwined fine oak and lees, fleshing out the acid backbone to a lengthy finish. This wine will be improving in bottle with age for the next 20 years.

Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.

NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”

You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
