VINEYARD / SOIL
The Orange region of New South Wales is one of Australia's newest premium regions being favoured for its high altitude cool climate. Situated approximately 270 km west of Sydney the topography and soils of the Orange region are dominated by the extinct volcano Mt Canobolas. The present day peak of the mountain is at 1400m and vineyards in the region are planted at elevations as high as 1100m with the lowest elevations in the region being 600m. Soils in the central part of the region are derived from the basaltic lavas of the old volcano, and primarily consist of deep red to brown free draining clay loams.

NOTES
This bottle fermented limited release sparkling wine is a blend of cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It is a wine of great complexity and texture with a fine and persistent bead. The lifted aromas are fresh and lively with hints of citrus, stonefruits and shortbread. This is a well balanced wine with great length and elegance.
