Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.
Varietals: 100% Pinot Meunier
Vines: Pinot meunier planted in 1990. A dry grown block on ancient grey silty loam to the south of the Underhill block and ever so slightly higher in elevation.
Lees Ageing: Made using the traditional method, it is here that the bubbles are formed and trapped inside the bottle. We left the bottles rest for 60 months where the wine is sitting with its secondary yeast lees to impart texture and creaminess. Disgorgement is the final step of the process; it is the removal of the yeast lees once they have done their job. Then the wine is ready to be enjoyed!
Cellaring: Once disgorged the wine is ready for drinking. Cellaring for more than 5 years isn’t recommended once this process has taken place.
