The Arras team retain access to an endowment of the finest sparkling wine vineyards in all Australia. Choice parcels of fruit, hand picked off the best blocks within the finest sites, are gently whole bunch pressed, retaining only the first free run juices, to retain freshness and elegance of structure. After a term of cold settling, the individual batches are vinified on light grape solids, followed by a course of malolactic on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, the wines are judiciously assembled to style and prepared for tirage. Six years maturation on yeast lees has built additional complexity and depth. Degorgement and introduction of expedition liqueur completes the Methode traditionelle.
Straw gold hue, crystal clear with fine bead and persistent mousse. Bouquets of orange peel and clove, a sea brine influence, complexed by fresh brioche and pastry yeast aroma. Like the bouquet, lively flavours of sea brine, citrus peel and sweet jasmine flower are complemented on the palate with truffle and butter/ mushroom characters. A racy acid and great persistence of flavour ensure an exciting finish.
