This Vintage Sparkling has been aged for four years in the bottle and recently dis-gorged for adding an additional nine grams per litre of residual sugar to finish the wine. Displaying a light straw colour with a pleasant light and persistent bead. Intense and complex aromas of creamy and assertive Pinot Noir yeasty flavours. A blend of 72% Pinot Noir and 28% Chardonnay; the Pinot giving structure and the Chardonnay contributing to the lovely soft length.
Coal River Valley
Robert Drew, Alain Rousseau
Robert Drew's family has farmed around the Tea Tree area in the Coal River Valley for over 100 years, Drew carried on the legacy until his first drop of premium Tasmanian wine. From that moment he decided to sell his house and bought a perfectly sited property sloping down the Merrieworth Rivulet in Tea Tree. Drew's success is due in no short measure to the typical bushman’s can-do, give-me-a-piece-of-wire-and-I’ll-fix-anything attitude, meticulous attention to detail, common sense and a lot of hard work.
