Blanc de Blancs are historically some of the most prestigious Champagnes and Sparkling Wines. Rich in colour and body, these wines define and embody a luxe, celebratory spirit.
Produced solely from Chardonnay, our Barrel Aged, Blanc de Blancs was barrel aged six months prior to us bottling it for secondary fermentation. Not only does this provide an added dimension of complexity to the wine, it is an Old World technique that truly demonstrates our winemaker Philip Dowell’s level of skill and artistry in creating balanced sparkling wines.
On lees for four and a half years, this sparkling wine is a beautiful straw colour with a rich mousse. Vanilla and a touch of toasted walnut are present on the nose. The palate is lively and full of vibrant lemon, lime and ripe pear characteristics. Much like you would expect out of a barrel aged Chardonnay table wine, the finish on this sparkling wine is long, balanced and decadent.
Our Barrel Aged, Blanc de Blanc pairs well with rich sauces and smoked fishes. Some of our favourite dishes to compliment this sparkling are mild curry chicken salad, mushroom risotto, oysters and scrambled eggs with truffle oil. For the perfect cheese pairings we suggest Gruyere, Gouda, Swiss, Cheddar and Parmesan.
