Sparkling wines shine in this Terroir Pack!
Bailly Lapierre Cremant de Bourgogne Reserve NV comes from the vineyards around Bailly in Burgundy. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay this is fine-boned, refreshing and long. There’s genuine finesse of fruit flavour and acidity at play making for the perfect sparkling aperitif.
Apogee “Deluxe” Brut 2016 hails from Andrew’s hand-picked vineyards not too far from Pipers River. This 2016 vintage is light gold with fine mousse and a suitable foamy collar when poured. Aromas range from bready, yeasty overtones through to perfumed red fruits and lemon-rind with a faint salty oyster-shell character which is part of our terroir. For a sparkling the wine is full-bodied on the mid-palate thanks to the cool climate pinot noir component but the cool climate chardonnay ensures a lean and fresh finish.
Champagne Nathalie Falmet Cuvee Brut is made entirely from the vineyards in the Cotes de Bar in the south of Champagne. It’s made of 50% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay (both 2011) and 20% Reserve (from a Soléra started in 2009). Its refined aromas of bright fruits migrate to a very light and delicate first palate. This champagne is dry (dosage: seven grams per liter) and firmly structured, but really fine and elegant, and provided with a good length and subtle mineral flavours.
