If you were going to pick a region to make super Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine then the Great Southern would have to be one of your go to regions thanks to its mix of both a cool climate and beautifully pristine environment which give superb purity of Chardonnay fruit. Mid straw in colour with a dusting of gold, it opens with beautifully elegant and precise aromas, from nectarine to florals and citrus well balanced with just cooked pastry bottle age influences. The palate is then bright, fresh and vibrant with a light, silky touch and crisp acid backbone before opening up to a soft finish accented by touches of buttered toast. A delicious aperitif, at any time of the day.
