Methode Traditionnelle Vintage 2015 Blanc de Blancs

The ‘crown jewel’ in our sparkling collection; this exquisite wine exudes style and finesse. Refreshing citrus notes with an irresistible aroma of a pâtisserie. Tantalizing lime and chamomile with precise acidity that dances on the palate. Fine persistent mousse will capture and engage your senses.

An exceptional example of world class Méthode Traditionnelle, handcrafted in Central Otago, New Zealand.

  • A cooler than normal spring was replaced with a dry November and extremely warm December just in time to provide the perfect window for the critical flowering period. Dry warm conditions continued through into February reducing the soil moisture significantly however in late summer, we experienced above-average rainfall and a cold snap. After unexpected snowfalls in mid-April, harvesting was fast-tracked. Overall fruit quality was excellent with slightly lower acid and sugar levels than normal.
  • The grapes for the Vintage 2015 Blanc de Blancs were hand-picked in ideal condition on the 10th March 2015. Bottled on the 9th November 2015, this exceptional wine was aged for 60 months on lees then riddled and disgorged by hand during Spring 2020 on-site at Quartz Reef.
  • pH: 3.09, TA: 8.7g/l, Alc: 12.5%, RS: 4g/l
