Sparkling Extra Brut 2014
Wine Club Price $31.23
Poplar Grove’s first release of sparkling wine. The Extra Brut presents golden yellow in colour, and has a traditionally bready nose like that of freshly baked brioche combined with the strong scent of golden delicious apples. Lively citrus acidity and delicate bubbles caress the palate while stone fruit flavours add freshness. It finishes with lingering mineral and almond notes. The result is a tantalizing and fine bubbly that will surely result in enjoyment!
Lovingly handpicked by our owner, Tony Holler, from his home estate vineyard, this is the first traditional method sparkling wine Poplar Grove Winery has produced. Comprised of 100% single vineyard estate grown chardonnay, strategically picked early to be developed into a dry & crisp bubbly. Primary fermentation was completed in 100% stainless steel. The chardonnay was then bottled, crown capped and laid horizontally in cages to undergo en tirage for 24 months. Once secondary fermentation was completed, the brut was left to rest on its lees to develop its classic bready characteristic. The wines were disgorged and final dosage assembled after numerous taste tests to determine the best liqueur d’expédition. This wine has developed beautifully in bottle and holds moderate acidity allowing it to be enjoyed now or laid down and enjoyed over the next 1 – 2 years.
This wine can be enjoyed now. Drink before the year ending 2019.
