Pipers Brook Estate Cuvée 2017


A lot of work has gone into this wine and it shows. First there is high quality pinot noir and chardonnay fruit from a top quality sparkling wine region showcased by powerful toasty and green apple fruits. There is then very fine bubbles with layers of brioche and pastry complexity thanks to a long slow ferment and extended aging on yeast lees. You’ll also find savoury, nutty complexity thanks to some of the base wine fermenting and aging in barrel, which is incredibly rare for a local sparkling wine. All together that has created one serious sparkling wine with a creamy texture and significant complexity. There is also a slightly surprising honeyed edge suggesting this wine is actually close to its peak and best enjoyed sooner rather than later, preferably with top drawer fish and chips, yes seriously.
