The grapes were hand harvested in 2019 and the juice fermented in stainless steel vats. In 2020 we inoculated the wine with a small amount of yeast to induce the secondary fermentation and bottled. The best Champagnes and Sparkling wines are made by méthod champenoise which requires a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine continued to sit on the lees for a further 38 months before being disgorged.
Sparkling wine tends to go very well with appetizers. It also goes well with fish and very light meals, and of course as an after-dinner celebration or toast.
