SKU: Late Disgorged 2008

Age alone does not make a Late Disgorged wine remarkable. To retain youthfulness and vibrancy after all those years, a wine requires that rare confluence of quality vineyard sites, a winemaker’s patience and the transformational effect of time on yeast. For this reason, Late Disgorged represents the pinnacle of sparkling winemaking and a special piece of history.

TASTING NOTES
TASTING NOTES
Pale yellow in the glass, with fine bead and mousse. Complex and delicate lemon verbena, bergamot, lime, baked apple, fresh dough and meringue aromas. Palate is fine with citrus character and surprising freshness, soft pillowy bubbles and lovely toast finish.
WINEMAKING
WINE MAKING
Grapes were picked at the onset of fruit ripeness during early February through to early March at 10.0° - 11.6° baumé. The grapes were picked in the cooler parts of the day to preserve quality and ensure minimal colour was extracted during the cuvée pressing. The grapes from each site were pressed and fermented separately to preserve their unique characteristics. Cuvées from the Upper Yarra Valley, Whitlands Plateau and Tasmania were sourced for this special long ageing wine. The wine spent over 10 years ageing on yeast, was disgorged in December 2018, and rested for a further six months before its release.

VINEYARD
Grapes were sourced from a range of the finest cool climate viticultural sites in the southern wine regions of Australia, including the Whitlands Plateau, Tasmania and Upper Yarra Valley. At a range of altitudes from 250m to 820m elevation respectively, the location of these vineyards brings cool nights, allowing the slow development of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir flavours while retaining terrific natural acidity.
