Redbank Emily Chardonnay Pinot Noir Brut Cuvée NV

Regular price $14.99 Sale

Fresh, elegant brut cuvée from high altitude vineyards.

Our home is the cool climate King Valley in Victoria’s high country. We
work closely with a dedicated family of carefully selected independent
growers, whose fruit complements that grown on our own estate
vineyard, to create the finest sparkling wines. A fresh, elegant wine crafted
from the classic blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Emily is a blend of
more than one vintage, resulting in a consistent style each year.


WINEMAKING
All aspects of winemaking are focussed on maintaining a refreshing,
crisp sparkling wine with delicate flavour. The grapes are harvested and
pressed on a gentle cycle to minimise phenolics and then fermented to
produce a classic base wine. After blending and ageing on yeast lees,
the final blend is tank fermented and expedition liqueur is added.


TASTING NOTE
Pale straw with golden green tints. The nose is delicate and fruit driven
with aromas of strawberry cream, citrus zest, white nougat and apple
skin. A feint peppery grapefruit note leads to attractive cashew and
yeast complexity from extended maturation on lees. Crisp and fresh,
the palate is alive with green apple, lemon and cashew. Time on lees has
given the wine an attractive creamy texture on the mid palate which
complements the fine line of green pear and citrus acidity, leading to a
refreshing, dry finish. This is a wine to enjoy now. Pair it with
barbequed lemon prawns or crispy eggplant bites with lemon aioli.
