Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of quartz schists, the opportune vines yield a small range of.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

The flagship Cuvee from one of the most venerable brands in the world, treated to two debourbages, one immediately after pressing and the second à froid after twenty four hours vinification at a chilly 7°C. Each individual parcel is separately handled, grape varieties and vineyard blocks are kept apart until assemblage. Upon completion to dry at temperatures not exceeding at 28°C, batches are treated to full malolactic, assembled and filled to bottle for secondary fermentation under the lowest Pol Roger cellars, thirty three metres below street level at a stable 9°C. Cuvée Winston Churchill is treated to old fashioned remuage by hand, a rarity in Champagne nowadays.
Intense golden hues, a spiral of the finest bubbles. Well structured nose, forceful but with subtle mineral notes and hints of lemon, white pepper and ginger. An august, mouthfilling palate, robust and powerful, saltiness and minerality, balance, structure and poise. The finish is astonishingly long, Sir Winston is a masculine Champagne, self assured and unforgettable, a wine full of character and charm to indulge for its complexity, pairing well with foie gras, canapes or a fine fromage comte.
