Boldly daring for a dry, light sparkling! Reminds us of passionfruit and wet earth.
Planted in 2003 on the precipice of the Trout Creek Canyon, this vineyard has been immaculately cared for by Garth Purdy from day one, and he continues to do so. This south facing vineyard has sandy soil that is dotted with large granite stones, producing spectacular Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from two large terraces.
Whole cluster Pinot Noir pressed into neutral oak puncheons. Wild primary fermentation and malolactic fermentation. Unfined, unfiltered. Tirage bottled in January 2020. Hand riddled and disgorged in house. No dosage, minimal sulphur.
