The Champenoise (winemakers of Champagne) produce stunning wines through their mastery of the art of blending. Richmond Grove has utilised the French experience gained over centuries to blend the two classical varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes for Richmond Grove were sourced from premium grape growing areas including the South Australian districts of Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.
The resultant wine is a marriage of a number of different styles from different vintages to produce a wine complex and rich, yet elegant in flavour.
The extended yeast age components add creaminess and depth from yeast autolysis, whilst the younger components contribute freshness and life to the wine.
