Origin: Mornington Peninsula
Grape(s): Chardonnay + Pinot Noir
Style: Medium-bodied sparkling wine made using traditional method
A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, aged on lees for more than 14 years! Still so fresh, with plenty of intensity and complexity. It offers a mix of lemon and apple on the nose, with subtle hints of mushroom, all overlaid with plenty of bakery aromas – croissant, baked bread, caramel.
Established by the Nix family in collaboration with winemaker Paul Olds, who is known for his work on southern French winery Les Clos Perdu (translates to “the lost vineyard”, great word play!), this is a project that looks for the best quality, and sometimes forgotten fruit, around the state of Victoria. Working from Nagambie to Heathcote to Mornington, there’s no varietal limit to their creativity. Paul has now passed the winemaking baton to the very capable hands of the talented Matt Campbell who continues the tradition of gentle handling and minimal mucking around to produce beautiful small batch wines that truly reflect their sense of place.
