A superb and rare example of a single varietal 100% Pinot Meunier from our Home Field Vineyard.
Primary fermentation took place 100% in used French oak barrels, followed by complete malolactic fermentation. Following 9 months of élevage, the final blend was bottled and left to age on lees for a minimum of 18 months. At disgorgement the wine received 1.5 g/L dosage and was aged for a further 3 to 6 months under cork.
A vibrant golden colour with a steady stream of fine bubbles. The nose is intense and pronounced. Caramelised peach, fresh cream and wet beach pebbles come initially. These aromas are backed up by a delicate wave of floral notes, such as apple and orange blossoms and honeysuckle. The palate is rich and complex with a profile of white peach, pear tarte tatin and salted almonds.
A versatile wine suited to all occasions, drinking equally well on its own or with food such as charcuterie, poultry and mushroom-based recipes. Perfect now or age for up to 3 years.
