“Our Blanc de Blancs is the truest expression of our terroir. We select the finest lots of Chardonnay, exhibiting natural minerality, ensuring that the wine has both the finesse and elegance that one would expect in this style, but also the requisite qualities for extended ageing.”

Charlie Holland

Single bottle

“A bright golden colour with a delicate mousse, this Blanc de Blancs has classic Chardonnay aromas of green apple, citrus and mineral notes combined with buttered toast and tarte tatin richness from extended lees ageing. The palate is well balanced with a streak of zesty acidity complementing a gentle mousse that gives way to a creamy, hazelnut and baked apple. Drinking very well now, it will continue to develop over the next two or three years. This wine is a great accompaniment to seafood in general, but is perfect with freshly shucked oysters.”
