“Elegance meets complexity in a melange of citrus & toasted brioche.”
Pelorus Brut is a chardonnay-predominant blend of selected vintages. It is a fresh, aperitif style sparkling wine with apple crisp flavours, underpinned by nutty yeast complexity derived from two years bottle maturation on lees.

“Has become a tighter and keener wine over the years. This one is a beauty that fits snugly into the aperitif style. Apple and citrus characters pervade the nose and palate with a long, pure, clean finish.” Rating 93 Ray Jordan The West Australian, October 2013
“Lots of cracked yeast and bread, white peach and citrus – complexity and intensity here. Full flavoured, briney and high impact, with fine acidity and an attractive bubbly mouth-feel. Has some Champagne character, yet also has individual style and quality. Very good. Surprisingly so.” Rating 93 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (JAN/2013)
A classic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the primary fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks, large oak vats and small French oak barrels. As always, this is a beautifully framed méthode traditionnelle with complex aromas of yeast, citrus, white peach and mushroom. The palate is refined and flowing with silky texture and a lingering crisp finish. Very satisfying.” Rating 93 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (DEC/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
The pale straw colour
Aromas of ripe citrus fruits indicate its chardonnay origins. A layered bouquet of apple and lemon citrus complements fresh bready notes derived from two years bottle ageing on lees.
The deliciously crisp palate displays toasty, creamy complexity, enhanced by a lingering nutty finish.
