NIMBOSTRATUS

A collaboration between the Burder family and winemaker Dominic Valentine, Nimbostratus is a special project wine that seeks to create a distinguished & modern example of cold climate chardonnay. With over 23 vintages under his belt, Dom now makes wine under his own label Valentine Wines - specialising is riesling, grenache & rose. With chardonnay making experience in the Yarra Valley & Margaret River, Nimbostratus couldn’t be in better hands. The (now sold out) 2016 was described by Ned Goodwin MW as ‘‘among the finest white wine tasted of late. No wonder Australian Chardonnay such a force.. coiled, energetic and flavourful, a textural quotient of dreams’’. Don’t despair though, the 2017 is looking sharp…

the assembly

We are one of Australia’s only grower-producers of bottle fermented sparkling wine. We make our sparkling wines in the French ‘méthode champenoise’ style, borrowing the winemaking techniques from Champagne : this means we use pinot noir, chardonnay & pinot meunier in various ratios; 100% of our fruit is grown on our own vineyard. We ferment base wines in old oak and re-ferment in bottle. After the second fermentation the wines age on their yeast ‘lees’ from 2.5 - 5 years depending on the wine style. It sounds simple but it’s quite precise - not to mention time consuming & absurdly expensive. But, we wouldn’t have it any other way. The finesse, elegance & character of wines made in this method is worth it.

Sparkling wine particularly can be as frivolous or as serious as you like, but it must be be joyful.
