Nose Fine and complex with attractive notes of citrus blossom, lemon curd and hints of Pinot musk. Yeast autolysis further enhances the bouquet with vibrant characters of brioche and toast.

Palate Vibrant, beautifully balanced and with fine bead, the wine displays harmonious fruit characters of citrus blossom and lemon peel, which are complemented by complex yeast autolysis notes of brioche and bread crust.

Coldstream Hills has been making sparkling wine, albeit in small quantities, since 1995. The first release of the wine was a Blanc de Noir, but in more recent times, it has been a more traditional blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The south facing slopes of the Deer Farm Vineyard at Gladysdale provide an ideal source for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The fruit was hand-picked and gently pressed prior to fermentation. Following secondary fermentation, the wine spent close to three years on yeast lees prior to disgorging and release.

Ideally served as an aperitif.

Winemaker Andrew Fleming

Vintage conditions: The growing season began well with good rainfall in September.  Average to above average rainfall fell in the ensuing months resulting in excellent vine health. The ripening period was characterised by an extended period of warm conditions without the extremes of the 2009 vintage. Fruit ripened quickly, but evenly, resulting in a compressed vintage period across all varieties.
