Product Description

Using premium fruit sourced from renowned sites throughout the prestige sparkling wine regions of Tasmania, this wine is a blend of the noble sparkling wine varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Parcels were judiciously blended before extended maturation on yeast lees. The use of aged reserve wines contribute to the additional dimension and depth to this wine.

Background The Bay of Fires wines were born of a desire to make cool climate wines of classical structure, combining fruit intensity with refinement, complexity and persistence of flavour. Made from small, high quality selections of fruit from across Tasmania’s viticultural regions, Bay of Fires Tasmanian Cuvees celebrate the unique cold climate and ancient soils of the Island.

Tasting Notes Crystal clear with a persistent bead. The Bay of Fires Pinot Noir Chardonnay is light straw incolour with a fresh gold hue. A very complex wine exhibiting toast, lanolin, sea brine andfresh yoghurt characters. The aroma exhibits honey, oyster and fresh yoghurt characters.The palate is finely structured and yet is long, powerful and complex. Multiple layers ofoyster, truffle and cherry brandy build in this intriguing wine. The wine has great depth ofcharacter from extended ageing and yet retains a fresh vibrancy of life.
