Crafted from prisine 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir grapes. This complex Sparkling is captivating and seductive, possessing a full bodied style with complex yeasty overtones and a luxurious creamy texture. Ageing on lees for 9 years has contributed to a fine persistent bead and a delicious mousse.
Milton Vineyard was first farmed in 1826 initially for fine Tasmanian wool but is now producing fine cool climate wines. We are located at 42 Degrees South on the dry sunny Freycinet Coast of Tasmania. The grapes are grown on free draining red loam liberally sprinkled with dolerite rocks. Tasmania lends itself to boutique vineyards. Our vineyard has a unique micro-climate that suits the ancient grape Pinot Noir. Also in our 13 hectare vineyard are plantings of the aromatics Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer. Our focus is on producing small quantities of handmade wine. Close attention is paid to every detail in the vineyard and the wines represent this exacting work.
