The Adelaide Hills region ensures loads of natural acidity and purity, which is ideal for sparkling wine. We use only the free run juice for our Fizz discarding the courser, broader pressings portion, allowing the wine to display more elegant flavour highlighted by the lemon lime characters of the Chardonnay and the wild strawberry of the Pinot Noir. My premise for creating this wine was as the essential party starter!

Clean fresh well-made sparkling with nice yeast autolysis layered with elegant varietal fruit. Some sweetness but has the acidity to balance.” Winestate, National 01 Jun 2014

Winery Tasting Notes
Light yellow with the palest of pink tinges
Fresh, restrained, youthful aroma of subtle peach and white flowers with a whiff of doughiness from the yeast influence.
Appealing and vibrant palate driven by green apples, wild strawberries all well supported by a zingy lemon and lime tartness. A subtle layer of creamy meringue is found underneath, which morphs into a sherbetty tang as it drifts toward the long dryish, finish.
An absolute party starter! It will then serve as a great partner to oysters or alternately indulge even further and hook into some shellfish.
