About

Pipers Brook Vintage Sparkling

Produced from grapes grown at Pipers Brook and at Strathlynn on the west bank of the Tamar River, 70km away. Northeast sites, close to Bass Strait, are subject to strong maritime influences. The best sparkling blocks were hand harvested in the cool morning hours at the Pipers Brook Vineyard. The fruit reflected the exceptional year. Low crops, a dry but cool growing season, and the beautiful Pipers Brook region produced fruit of power and purity.  Cool fermented to retain these exceptional fruit characters, some parcels were selected for fermentation and ageing in barrel. Hand crafted this wine was blended from only the best individual parcels to and create a wine of beauty and complexity. Made in the Traditional Method this wine underwent secondary fermentation in bottle and was then aged for six years in these bottles before release.
