This crisp, light, sparkling Blanc de Blancs is made in the traditional method of the Champagne region of France and is made from ancient vines grown on the certified organic vineyard at the foot of Bindoon Hill.

This sparkling wine is delicate, fresh and with a youthful white peach and rock melon character. It has a lingering fruit finish with a fine mousse.

The vineyard is dry grown and the fruit handpicked and selected. The lack of irrigation leads to greater fruit flavour and intensity and character as well as seasonal variation. The rainfall variations influence the amount of moisture available while the variations in temperature, particularly at picking, can also have a significant effect on the vintage.

This greater influence of the season on a particular vintage intensifies the regional characteristics of the wine.
