The Bay of Fires vineyards normally experience a growing season quite similar to Reims, Burgundy and Alsace. Roughly equal proportions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with a smaller component of Pinot Meunier, are hand picked and whole bunch pressed, to ensure freshness and elegance of structure. After fining, the individual batches are vinified on light grape solids and treated to malolactic on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, the wines are assembled to style and prepared for tirage. Extended maturation on yeast lees builds additional complexity and depth of character, while the expedition liqueur and inclusion of aged reserve wines contributes to the overall depth and dimension of palate.
Crystal clear, persistent bead, light straw gold hue. A very complex wine exhibiting toast, lanolin and sea brine characters, honeycomb, yoghurt and oyster. The palate is finely structured, long, powerful and complex. Multiple layers of oyster shell, truffle and apricot brandy build in this intriguing wine. A great depth of character from extended ageing, retaining freshness and vibrancy. A solid, natural acid backbone, biscuit and citrus follow the palate all the way to a crisp, dry finish.
