These 'Bubbles' are a lightly sparkling aperitif style. Soft, generous and moussant, the flavours are of nashi pear, white peach with a crisp apple finish.
Fun and flavoursome.
This is a lightly carbonated style made from ripe Gladstone Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. The ripeness of the fruit, the lees contact and the residual sugar balance the natural acidity resulting in an approachable fresh and easy 'Bubbles'.
IN THE vineyard
The grapes were grown at our Carters, Dakins Road and Home blocks. The Dakins Road block is situated on stony river alluvial soils and the home block on slightly heavier silty loam.
The Home block vines are 25 years old, giving great texture and weight to the final wine.
