The NV Sparkling Cuvée is made by the traditional method with around two years on lees time. The assemblage was focused on retaining the fresh fruit characteristics whilst balancing the autolytic and more mature flavours. This wine showcases many of the elements that make a non-vintage sparkling wine so appealing. The maturity of the older wine brings a richness and depth, which combines beautifully with the fresh apple, citrus and stone fruit flavours of the younger wines. The Cuvée NV has flavours of fresh bread, nuts and leatherwood honey and a lingering and complex finish. Too good to save just for special occasions!
A complex sparkling wine with characteristics of ripe stone fruit and green apples plus, a hint of richness and maturity.
(60% Pinot Noir - 40% Chardonnay)
The NV Sparkling Rose is 100% hand harvested Pinot Noir from our vineyard and made in the traditional method with around two years on lees time. The purity of the Pinot Noir fruit, crisp acidity and notes of maturity are the goal when blending this wine. Showing true mature Sparkling Rosé characters, it has a pale salmon colour and an aroma of fresh strawberry and musk, complexed by hints of lanolin and toast. The flavoursome palate boasts unctuous red berry fruits, complemented by brioche characters, and is fine but with firm, savoury tannins. It has persistent flavours finishing with crisp natural acid.
Generous strawberry and musk aromas, sweet berry flavours on the palate with a clean and refreshing finish.
(100% Pinot Noir)
The 2018 Naissante Pinot Noir is made using the same approach as the Delamere Pinot Noir, the wine sees hand harvesting, wild yeast fermentation, 30% whole bunch inclusion, hand plunging and matured in French barriques. Rounded and juicy, showing ripe cherry and strawberry characteristics. A subtle earthiness followed through with notes of sweet spice and smoke, coming together to create a complex and very drinkable wine.
