Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

This Blanc de Blanc is a pale straw colour with a fine, persistent bead and mousse.

Aroma

The time on lees has added complex honey and brioche notes.

Palate

This wine displays classic sparkling Chardonnay characters of lemon and white peach, and a long, elegant palate driven by minerality and natural acidity.

Cellaring Potential

It is drinking beautifully now but has the structure to develop over the next 8- 10 years.

Wine Background

The first Clover Hill sparkling wine, the 1991 vintage, was made entirely from Chardonnay grown on our premium sparkling vineyard in the Pipers River region of Tasmania. Today, when we have an exceptionally high quality Chardonnay vintage, we draw on this history and years of French winemaking tradition to blend the Clover Hill Blanc de Blancs.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Clover Hill was established in 1986 as a dedicated sparkling wine estate. The Clover Hill vineyard, located in the Pipers River region of north east Tasmania, has ideal climatic conditions and terroir to create Australia’s finest sparkling wine.

Planted solely to traditional sparkling wine varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, considerable variation in the vineyard’s aspect and soil profile adds further complexity to the fruit sourced. Slow ripening conditions enable the grapes to develop a full flavour spectrum, resulting in a sparkling wine of richness, concentration and superb structure.
