Looking for something to celebrate with?
Montalto Estate Cuvée One 2016 is made in the traditional method from the classic blend of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir. Subtle fruits qualities of green apple and strawberry combine with brioche notes from yeast autolysis.
A perfect dry sparkling wine to enjoy as an aperitif and for all kinds of celebrations.
‘The mix of varieties and extended lees ageing has resulted in a complex bouquet. The Chardonnay component sings with citrus and white flowers, the Pinot Noir brings strawberries and red fruits while the winemaking and lees handling introduces a whole new level of complexity by way of bready and yeast aromas. There is plenty of richness upfront supported by a creamy mid-palate with lots of mouth feel. Tangy naturally acidity provides line, length and freshness.’
Simon Black, Winemaker
|Hand harvesting permitted whole bunch pressing to stainless steel tanks for cold settling. The juice was racked off gross lees before inoculation with DV10 yeast. The ferment was cool and proceeded to dryness. In search of a tight and focussed wine style, MLF was not allowed to proceed. The base wine was tiraged and matured on lees for four and a half years before disgorging.|
|Harvest Date||12th February 2016 (Pinot Noir) & 23rd February 2016 (Chardonnay)|
