Overview

Don't let the pretty label fool you - a serious vintage sparkling with finesse, complexity and a fresh dry finish.

Serious traditional sparkling's come from cool climates and in Western Australia that means heading south. We have chosen to source the fruit for this, second release of this sparkling wine, from contracted growers in Pemberton. The wine was made using the traditional method of Champagne. The varieties were hand picked and whole bunch pressed, then fermented separately in stainless tanks. After five months, they were blended to taste and bottled for the secondary fermentation to occur - whereby the carbon dioxide is trapped in the bottle creating the fizz. After 22 months on lees in bottle, the residual yeast was disgorged and the bottles topped with aged liqueur wine and sealed ready for drinking.

Almond meal, sweet green apples, lemon pith.

Palate

Fine and lemony upfront, subtle pear and white fleshed nectarine gives way to a mid palate which is creamy but with some mineral flintiness. The finish is lively, fresh and dry, with a gush of juicy apple-like acidity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.
