After being crushed and pressed in 2013, the wine spent almost 3 years in various older French oak vessels to soften tannins and fruit characters. Then it was blended and sent to Peterson’s Champaign House for secondary fermentation. This sparkling wine did not spend any time on its lees. Rather, it was bottled with low sugar dosage using the Charmat method.
The grapes for this wine came from Mudgee fruit. Most of the ageing was done prior to the secondary fermentation at Peterson’s Sparkling House. The result is a soft easy drinking sparkling red with low alcohol and plenty of complexity offered by the elegant berry fruit, low tannins and aged characters. The lighter style that this wine has been made in makes it a versatile wine for drinking chilled.
Ready to drink now and should be pleasant drinking through 2018 at least.
The perfect companion for a summer barbecue or enjoy it with some spicey asian flavours.
