NIMBOSTRATUS CHARDONNAY 2017

MODERN, FLAVOURSOME, AGE WORTHY, REFINED

Continuing our commitment to bottle-age prior to release, we are delighted to finally launch the 2017 vintage. For those familiar with the 2016, this wine is cut from the same cloth, but is finer and a little more primary - although it will of course intensify over the next few years. After a tricky season, the handpicked fruit was whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented. Then it was matured on lees for 9 months in French oak puncheons & barriques (25% new); with no stirring or malolactic. The 2017 is a true reflection of the Whitlands region: a finely tuned, all natural acid core, seamless oak & true cold climate flavour intensity. Lees derived texture fleshes out the palate. We think it’s pretty delicious!

THE ASSEMBLY NV SPARKLING

BRIGHT, INTRICATE, CHARMING

This is the wine you open while you’re deciding what else to open! NV stands for non-vintage meaning that this wine is a blend from a few different seasons – in this case, 2013 and 2015. It was hand picked from our high altitude Whitlands vineyard and is a blend of Pinot Meunier 45%, Pinot Noir 40%, Chardonnay 15% . This wine was made in the same way as the vintage – with full barrel ferment, however the yeast ageing is less, at two years (opposed to four). This keeps the wine bright and more fruit focused. As it says on the label, it’s really quite charming – nice and dry, bright strawberry flavours with a nice savoury kick to it.

THE ASSEMBLY 2013 VINTAGE SPARKLING

LUXURIOUS, COMPLEX, LAYERED, MEMORABLE

This wine is indeed an Assembly: the individual parcels of fruit, the blending after the first ferment, the blending of the dose prior to disgorging – not to mention the amount of people who came together to help me bring this wine out into the world. An incredible effort over the last four years. A heartfelt thanks to everyone involved – this is the most exciting wine to date.

This wine is made entirely from 2013 fruit grown on our vineyard and has spent 55 months on lees. The fruit was handpicked and fermented in old pinot noir barrels with wild yeast; a couple of barrels went through malo. It’s pretty delicious & a little bit fancy!
