Aromatic Aussie sparkling wine, packed with tropical fruit freshened by a spritz of lime and with a pure minerality on the finish.

From the revered Fechner bros. vineyard in the Northern Eden Valley. The Fechner bros. have the only Kerner vineyard in Australia after they encountered the Riesling cross-breed during a visit to Germany in 2003. The vineyard is adjacent to a Limestone quarry. These vines are all growing through a layer of clay into Limestone bedrock, which underpins the aromatic impact of the germanic white varieties. A prevailing breeze here keeps the vineyard dry, which allows for a light-handed approach to weed/disease control. Vineyard GPS: 34° 28' 39" S 139° 4' 11" E

The two major components (Riesling & Kerner) are hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed in order to minimise phenolic impact. The Gewürztraminer, however, is machine harvested and given about 24 hours skin contact in order to accentuate varietal aromatic impact. Both primary and secondary fermentation (charmat method) were undertaken in delicate temperature controlled inox fermenters without the use of sulfur or other additions. Finally, a modest (5.4g/L) dosage was added for texture and body. Bottled unfined and with minimal sulphur addition.

Great to drink on its own at a party or as an aperitif but would equally work beautifully with pan-seared scallops.
