Caledonia Australis Methode Ancestral Blanc de Blancs 2014


Mike Bennie, Wine Front, “This is a blanc de blancs (chardonnay) from organic (certified) fruit produced in the methode ancestral style (petillant naturel), where the primary ferment continues its magic in bottle. Risky business. This popped and gushed a touch, but only lost the top of the neck. Some will, some won’t, the thrill of pet nats. Ha. This is produced from South Gippsland Wine Company, which covers Mount Macleod and Caledonia Australis. Can’t find price or imagery, but hey, hassle them via the internet if interested. Golden coloured with light bubble. Offers quince and pineapple scents, whiff of pepper, some rockmelon whiffs. Pleasing albeit just slightly candle-waxy-essence perfume. Palate has some good zing to acidity, pineapple/stone fruit flavours, ripe lemon and bright, crisp finish. Pleasing drinking here, with a good feel all up for the style.”

The Leongatha region has shown that it enjoys the terroir required to produce excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines that express great length and complexity. Mount Macleods’ three vineyard sites, all in the Leongatha region, were selected to an exacting criteria; free-draining, high ironstone soils with pebbling throughout and east to north-east aspect. They are fabulous vineyard sites. The wines are made by one of Australia’s leading cool climate winemakers – Martin Williams MW.
