The long cool maritime influenced growing season of the Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay districts, where Lindauer fruit is sourced, is capable of maturing grapes well past the point at which they are suitable for sparkling wines. The timing of harvest is therefore very important and closely monitored.
The early season harvest of sparkling grapes ensures that they experience a season which very closely mimics that of more classically defined cool climate regions. The advantage of this early harvest is surety of ripeness and balance, but with natural acidity the envy of many wine growing regions of the world. The harvest is timed so the fruit flavours and aromas are still in the yellow citrus to green apple fruit spectrum for Chardonnay and fresh red strawberry spectrum for Pinot Noir.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pinky/gold salmon coloured.
Subtle strawberry aroma, intermingled with an underlying yeasty, toasty bouquet.
A careful blending of the base wines has resulted in a full palate with an elegant finesse. The wine has a hint of sweetness which complements the subtle, lingering taste of strawberries.
Designed to be enjoyed young, Lindauer Fraise will add fun to any occasion.
