Grant Burge Pinot Noir Chardonnay is a delectable sparkling wine made using the method traditionelle. This means that it is made in the same style as the champagnes of France are traditionally crafted.
The fruit for the sparkling is sourced from the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills of South Australia. Much of the Eden Valley fruit is grown at vineyard which is a high altitude and receives more rainfall than the vineyards in the Barossa Valley.
The result is that these grapes, from the Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills, are delicately flavoured and exhibit a naturally high acidity that is required to make high quality sparkling wine in the tradition of Champagne.
This sparkling wine is adaptable to all occasions and as such is just as enjoyable with food as it is on its own. The style is one of elegance and finesse, balanced with flavour and, above all, drinkability.
Tasting Note: Yeasty, hazelnut and brioche aromatics with ripe strawberry and rose-petal notes. The palate is rich and generous and shows flavours of bread dough, strawberry and oyster, accented by a lean acid backbone from its cool climate fruit origins.
