The Moppity team endeavour to promote the somewhereness of site. There's nothing generic about Lock & Key wines, they reflect unique geographic origins. Moppity Vineyard's microclimate is cool to moderate with a long, even ripening period, which supports flavour development and underpins the intensity of the wines. Although early spring frost is an issue, the property is sited on undulating terrain, ensuring adequate frost drainage. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is harvested in the cool of night at optimum ripeness to preserve freshness of fruit. Only the cleanest free run juices are cold fermented to retain aromatics and primary fruit. A secondary fermentation is initiated at Peterson's Champagne House.
Bright, vibrant, pale straw with a very fine bead. Complex aromas of bright lemon, green apple and stonefruit. Citrus and stone fruit flavours prevail, the wine shows a creamy texture and fine natural acid. Lock & Key is a bright, lively vintage sparkling wine with plenty of fresh citrus flavour, a wonderful effervescence and a rich, creamy mouthfeel. An excellent sparkling wine fit for any occasion worth celebrating.
