77% Chardonnay, 23% Pinot Noir
74% Margaret River, 26% Mount Barker
Méthode Traditionelle - fresh and light with a fine bead and a crisp lively finish.
“A perfect, delicate, aperitif-style sparkling wine from Australia. Light citrus notes bound out of the glass along with some bready, toasty notes. The palate is lively and crisp and very impressive overall. A good party wine.”
Will Lyons, Wall Street Journal
This Australian sparkling wine is made using method traditional techniques. The blend is handcrafted at each stage of its development, replicating the techniques perfected in France over centuries.
The grapes were picked at an early phase of ripeness from select parcels of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from our vineyards in Margaret River and Mount Barker. Delicate aromas, flavours and natural acidity are preserved producing a fine, yet rich and complex wine.
Gentle juice extraction from whole bunches, that are tipped by hand into the press produced the very finest juice which was then fermented at low temperature, to preserve the natural delicate characters of the grapes.
The resultant wine then underwent the secondary bottle fermentation to produce a natural effervescence in the wine.
Over eighteen months resting on the yeast lees in the bottle has aided the development of secondary, complex flavours and aromas. The sediment was then settled by riddling prior to disgorgement.
Prior to sealing the bottle a small dosage of sweetening was added to balance the fine acidity of the wine.
Luminescent in appearance and pale apricot in colour. The bouquet shows Chardonnay’s fresh citrus and mineral notes and Pinot Noir’s soft plush red berries. On the palate these primary fruit notes are enriched with freshly baked pastries and a creamy texture.
The MadFish Vera’s Cuvée Sparkling NV is a rich style that can be enjoyed any time.
