Stonehaven Stepping Stone Sparkling NV

Share

New life at one of the Limestone Coast’s most significant wineries, Stonehaven. Originally built as part of the then Hardy’s mega-empire, it has seen ups and downs, including sitting dormant for a period. With the sale of the facility and vineyards to C. W. Wines, we have a most welcome resurrection. And we even have a fresh, new sparkler to celebrate this. Part of the Stepping Stone range, which is a newly released set of wines at entry level to provide winelovers with fresh, easy-drinking, good value drinking, with the focus on the Limestone Coast but extending beyond that, as well.

This youthful sparkler is a blend of the traditional Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, sourced from throughout South Australia. The grapes were harvested early for freshness, before undergoing a cool tank fermentation and then extended lees contact. An attractive gold colour, this is fresh and foaming, very much upfront with enthusiastic exuberance. A mix of aromas, with lemons, raspberries, spices, florals and a touch of peach. Ripe, fully flavoured, generous and approachable.
