Carter Estate Blanc De Blanc Sparkling

SKU 14BDBCE-1
  • From the Winemaker:This is the third release of Blanc de Blanc from the sparkling cellars of South Coast Winery. This product has been painstakingly nurtured to deliver a sparkling wine with the finesse, flavor and aroma of a fine Methode Champenoise sparkling wine. The process included barrel fermentation and barrel aging of approximately 8% of the cuvee prior to the secondary fermentation. Once the Blanc de Blanc had been blended and undergone secondary fermentation, it was aged for an additional fifteen months on the yeast lees. This time on the yeast lees helped to develop the yeasty, toasty aromas, a very fine bubble bead, wonderfully full creamy textures and an extraordinary mousse. These are qualities which are notably inherent in fine sparkling wines.
  • About the Wine:The 2014 Blanc de Blanc is brimming with fresh apple and delicate floral aromas; a hint of oak shows in the background with a nuance of vanilla, toasty cookie and a rich yeasty character. Finished at 0.8 gms/100mL residual sugar, this wine has a very bright acidity and a refreshingly dry finish. Definitely our finest sparkling release to date!
