Chardonnay Pinot Noir Sparkling 2020
A fresh and delicate nose with light fruits and yeasty tones, complimented by a hint of fresh berries and cream. The Chardonnay offers both complexity and fruit on the palate, whilst the Pinot Noir brings an elegance and sophistication to complete the overall package. A lovely, fresh wine with a lingering bead and a persistent length.

Viticulturist Notes
This wine was crafted from 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir grapes, chosen from our three best performing vineyards. Grapes were picked and crushed during the cool of night to retain their fresh, varietal flavours. The juice was then divided into three select parcels. Each parcel underwent a different treatment such as malolactic fermentation; fermentation and time with French oak; or spending an extended period on yeast lees. Each treatment resulted in an individually flavoured parcel of wine, and the unique character and personality of the final blend is a result of the special handling of these separate parcels.
Wine Harvest Notes
I have been making wine with McPherson Wines for 15 years now, and just when you think you have it sorted, bam another challenge comes your way. Vintage 2020 in itself was manageable and promising, yields were low therefore overall tonnages down. Given yields were low, quality is great - the intensity of both colour and flavour in the reds and whites is excellent - there will certainly be some cracking reds from 2020. We were almost through the harvest when the COVID restrictions hit - which provided another level of complexity. However it all worked out in the end, it usually does, and I hope that everyone enjoys our 2020 wines.
Food Recommendations
A brilliantly versatile wine, exceptional as an apertif or starter. It is delicious served with a seafood entrée or Thai stir-fry and is superb with fresh fruit and dessert at the end of a meal.
