This Sparkling is made from a single block at TarraWarra, hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, with a long, cool tank ferment. Racked to older puncheons for 6 months ageing, then tiraged to bottle for secondary fermentation. The wine has spent 8 years on lees in bottle before disgorging in December 2018.
A toasty bread aroma, the palate is very fine with a lovely creaminess. The line of acid gives way to a wonderful persistence of flavour and excellent potential for long term cellaring. Drink now and over 10 or more years.
G-Block is one of our original sites planted in 1983, and grafted in 2006 to 95 clone Chardonnay. This clone was isolated at the University of Dijon, and is commonly used in the Champagne region.
2010 was one of the most ideal vintages, with mild to warm weather through the season. Made from a single block. The fruit was in perfect condition at harvest, very balanced with beautiful flavour.
