About This Wine
Cool climate classic Kreglinger, a very captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl beads that provide both fine and lively texture to a crisp clean mouth feel. Freshly baked apple pastries melt in your mouth. The addition of our liqueur de dosage at disgorgement has added further richness and complexity to the already multi-layered palate. The finish is long and elegant with mineral quartz, nori and all with the maritime depth of seaside flavours, and a palate that leads to a crisp, dry, lingering finish.

|Varietal(s)||Chardonnay Pinot Noir|
The Tasmanian wine region is a cool climate region, the most southerly of all wine regions in Australia. Due to the lower temperatures, the area grows primarily Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, with smaller plantings of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Sauvignon.
“Having been to many wine tastings over the years, I can definitely say from a personal standpoint that Tasmanian Chardonnay and Pinot noir are always ones I look forward to trying if they are on the menu. They are almost always high calibre wines that can easily compete against what the rest of the world has to offer in these varietals.” Jason C. – World Wine.
While Tasmania makes great still wines, the exceptional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir also make for excellent sparkling wines.
More recent vintages since 2005 have been positively impacted by the effects of global warming. With slightly higher temperatures the grapes are ensured to ripen fully and produce more vibrant wine.
James Halliday – "Hand-picked in the early morning, whole-bunch pressed, cool-fermented in tank and barrel, then in traditional method in bottle. It is cruising along peacefully, its crisp acidity underpinning the richness developed during 9 years on yeast lees prior to disgorgement. Spice, dried and fresh fruits provide texture and flavour." James Halliday
World Wine – A complex style that contrasts the savoury complexity of charcuterie with the fleshiness of juicy stone fruits, the character of dried pear and the tension of vibrant citrus. A succulent generosity fills the mid-palate, with the biscuity complexity of barrel fermentation and lees age, culminating in the refreshing tension of Pipers River. It finishes long and full, with the generosity of a warm, dry and low-yielding season. Australian Sparkling Report 2017
