2015 Ocean Aged Vintage Cuvée


A classic blend of the 3 noble grape varieties. Chardonnay brings the roundness and volume, Pinot Noir the backbone and structure, and Pinot Meunier… the prettiness. This bottle fermented wine exhibits a brilliant vibrancy of fruit, coupled with secondary complexity derived from extensive tirage maturation. A sophisticated style with fantastic poise and finesse.

Perfectly timed rains throughout the growing season established a balanced canopy and perfectly sized bunches. Slightly cooler conditions prevailed leading into harvest which permitted extended hang time and flavour development. Grapes were hand picked the last week of April.

A densely structured wine with great presence and minerality following eight years of tirage maturation. Fragrant aromas of citrus blossom, sourdough crust and oyster shell lead to a palate that shows great tension and poise. The firm natural acidity provides a backbone to flavours of Granny Smith apple, white peach, lime essence and brioche. Ocean ageing further enhances the characters of yeast autolysis while retaining freshness and a sophisticated line and length.
